+ Add a winery image

Jam Cellars is the wine brand from John Anthony Truchard and his wife, Michelle, out of the Napa Valley, California. The name is both a combination of the first names of the married winemakers, but also describes the overall style of the value-driven, fruity, some say almost “dessert-like” wines. Truchard is the son of Carneros wine pioneers Tony and JoAnn Truchard. John Anthony Truchard started Jam in 2003.

  • Napa Valley grape growers and winemakers wore out their worry beads in 2011. Rain came early, often and didn’t want to go away. It was a cool year as well, forcing winemakers to spend even more time walking the vineyards than usual. Napa Valley is accustomed to dry, warm, sunny growing seasons. It’s Cabernet Sauvignon wines are widely known for ... Read More

  • Cotes du Rhone. It’s a surprisingly well known wine in a world where the wines people are generally more comfortable with come with varietal designations as opposed to regional ones. Sure there are Chianti, and Bordeaux, but how many other regional appellations are most people familiar with? And is there any other that is exclusively focused on ... Read More

  • Hey OT - had an 18 oz steak last night with some salad and a Cab. Tonight it's pulled pork and yeah, I know that's the other white meat but it's got plenty of BBQ sauce so for me it counts as a red. And it's clashing with a not-so-good WA Cab blend at the moment.dvogler - did you do videos??? When did you do that? I never even saw you do them.As... Read More

  • Hey everyone, what are some of your favorite 'everyday' or M-F types of wines to accompany a regular dinner?  I personally have enjoyed the Montoya Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa, and I usually pick it up from Total Wines out here in Virginia.  This is one of those fruit-forward cabs that isn't too complex for me to appreciate, and it usually cost...

  • It has been some four years since I last took a look at 1989 Barolo in any depth. Now at age 25 these wines should be in the prime of their lives, at least the better examples still out there. Increasingly rare and well traded, there is much to be concerned with with these wines. Faulty corks, poor storage along the way and the simple vagaries o... Read More
