Jones Family the Sisters 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Great ripening weather in the Fall yielded beautifully developed ripe wines in 2005. The Sisters blend has aromas of spice, vanilla, cedar and plumy fruit. Very clean with smoky overtones, the flavors are of black cherry and red currants. Soft mouth feel and lively acidity make for an easy drinking enjoyable Cabernet Sauvignon blend.--Heidi Peterson Barrettwinemaker, June 23, 20082005 The SistersWinemaker Notes - This lovely wine is the little sister to our estate Jones Family Cabernet. It is a blend of certain blocks of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Dark garnet in color with aromas of a young Bordeaux. I smell ripe blueberry and cocoa powder and bits of spice and toasted oak. This wine is medium bodied with firm structure that should lend itself well to further aging. The tannins are light and dusty and flavors are of plum and cherry. Nicely balanced.- Heidi P. BarrettWinemaker, Jones Family Vineyards

6 hour decant. Deep ruby color. The nose is pure crème de cassis and kirsch royal. The palate reveals a nice pure sweet red & black fruit profile, and not the bad sweet type I detest. Great black cherry, black currant, cherry cola, pomegranate, with some soy, soil, and lead pencil shavings. This has a lushness not normally associated with wines at this price point. A medium to full bodied mouth feel that is long, elegant, and beautifully structured. The tannins are on the biggish side and a few years in the cellar will most certainly reward the owner. A creamy extended finish completes the package. I wanted to try this as I seen the Jones website still offering me more. I ordered 6 more. One of my favorite list purchases and one to surely keep on. A QPR in its class.
