History Since 1988, Jade Mountain has been a pioneer in the production of age-worthy Rhône-style California wines. The winery was founded with the belief that carefully chosen California vineyard sites planted to Rhône grape varieties can achieve quality on-par with the best from the Rhône region in France. Jade Mountain creates world-class wines by pushing the limits of grape-growing and winemaking for the extract, flavor and richness that comes with the California sun and its individual expressions of Rhône varietals. Terroir Only a few locations in California have the perfect combination of soil and climate for growing world-class Syrah. Paras Vineyard sits at the 1,200-foot elevation on the eastern side of rocky Mount Veeder, overlooking the Napa Valley. The steep, terraced shale slopes are ideal for Syrah because of the cool, yet sun-drenched, climate and low-vigor soils. The vineyard is farmed terrace by terrace, with each row individually cared for. This same care is used at each of the vineyards from which we source grapes for Jade Mountain's wines. The grapes are picked by hand, then fermented in small lots to retain their unique character. All of these factors result in meager production, but high-quality wine Read less

Coconut Rice Sweet Potato Cheesecake

RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.

The outstanding 1999 Merlot Paras Vineyard (633 cases) reveals aromas of melted chocolate, black cherry jam, and espresso. It is full-bodied (14.9% alcohol), ripe, dense, and chewy, with toasty new oak in the background. This is a plump, full-throttle Merlot to consume over the next 10-12 years.

A deep, rich, intensely flavored young wine, with a firm, focused band of currant, spice, blackberry, plum and raspberry flavors. Finishes with a zingy aftertaste, revealing layers of depth and concentration. Has the tannin for short- to mid-term cellaring. Drink now through 2010.
