When Diane and Ken Wilson first visited the Mendocino County property they fell in love with the patchwork of California oaks and the Russian River running along the vineyards. Bringing this Mendocino vineyard back to life was a challenge they could not pass up. First renovating the historic Farmhouse on the hill and then focusing on the vineyards this project kept them busy this year. Ken, born and raised in Ontario Canada, is passionate about his vineyards and wineries. And this property reminded him of his grandfathers and their passion for farming and land. They named the winery after them both, Jack Wilson and Cecile Keys are being honored with the new label. – Description from kristi3

  • Zinfandel, it’s no secret that I’ve carried on a long and intimate relationship with you. There is so much you have to offer. Sometimes you're a bit rough and tumble, edgy, even dangerous, while other times you’re coy or playful. But you’re always there for me, with joyous fruit, classic bramble notes and structure, allowing for early consumptio... Read More

  • Jaxon Keys Zinfandel Mae's Block 2010

    Snoothrank:

    A little reduced on the nose, which shows soft aromas of blackberry, ash and dry wood.

This is a touch four-square, but it does show nice spiced fruit on the slightly chunky finish. 87 points Read More

    Snoothrank:

    Dark, oily and extracted on the nose with floral top notes and oily seed aromas,. The nose does offer up some fine fresh perfumes of wild fruit. On the palate theres an early rush of blackberry fruit in a lighter style, decidedly medium body with lovely bright fruit, zesty berry flavors and fine tannins that lead to a moderately long finish. 8...
