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 Read more »

  • I love N. Rhone Syrah.  It's my favorite red wine in France.  But the acreage of the region is so small and the area that provide its best wines even smaller, that prices have hit the roof.  Sure, there are a few St. Josephs and Crozes-Hermitages that come in around $25, but those are either made for earlier drinking and a lot less thrilling wit...

  • Well known producer with broad distribution.  Definitely one of the bigger ... of them will equal the old Jade Mountain's Provencale, which had to be Cali appellated because it mixed Napa, Lake County, and Sierra Foothills grapes, but was a better deal on a CdR-type wine than any other Cali wine--at least when I paid less than $10 for it. Just ... Read More

  • That's plenty of time for any of those.  That Jade Mountain was made after they sold the winery (Jim Paras kept the vineyard) and changed the labels (and the focus of the winery from Rhone grapes).  Too bad because their Syrah was good stuff, and the Provencale, a GSM blend, was a huge value.
