John Anthony Vineyards

2022 Fall Release

Welcome to the John Anthony Vineyards Fall release. All orders are scheduled to ship the week of October 3rd, 2022. We thank you for your support.

“This chardonnay is the inaugural vintage sourced from our Jameson Canyon Vineyard in a cooler Napa Valley microclimate. Aromas of citrus blossom, lemon pound cake and apple beignets are lengthened by undercurrents of minerality. Essences of Fuji apple, poached pear and sea-salted shortbread bring volume to the palate. A chardonnay that combines classic Napa Valley character with John Anthony Vineyards style.”

Vintage Notes: A dry growing season in 2021 brought lower yields, early ripening and excellent fruit concentration to Napa Valley’s white varietals. The chardonnay fruit was fresh and full-flavored across the board—qualities that are abundant in this release of John Anthony Napa Valley Chardonnay.

“The merlot vines that John planted at Crane Vineyard in the Oak Knoll District in 1996 continue to gain in maturity and stature. The 2019 vintage displays the breadth that is possible from this cornerstone estate. Aromas of pomegranate and dried blueberry are underscored by violets, mocha, black licorice and baking spices. An expressive palate shows flavors of baked boysenberry, ripe olallieberry, sweet tobacco and lavender. Dusty tannins linger on a structured finish."

Vintage notes: Abundant early rainfall, a relatively warm summer and moderate harvest weather set the tone for an excellent merlot vintage at Crane Vineyard in 2019. The reliable cooling effect from San Pablo Bay played its perennial role in fostering pure varietal merlot character, a hallmark of this site.

"Despite being less than one acre, the Hermitage clone at Crane Vineyard continues to be the dominant force in this vineyard-designated syrah. Classic varietal aromas lead the way: dark fruits, lilac, cedar, charcuterie and herbs de Provençe. Dense flavors of blackberry, boysenberry, blueberry and black cherry expand with accents of smoked game, dark earth, graphite and cardamom. Grainy tannins bring the wine to a resounding conclusion. A tour-de-force syrah from one of the first vineyards John planted in the Oak Knoll District nearly 25 years ago. "

Vintage notes: A perfect confluence of conditions brought the Crane Vineyard syrah to an impressive conclusion in 2019. Plentiful winter rainfall, a warm summer and a mild harvest season paved the way for a balance of richness and vibrancy, including the savory cooler-climate syrah qualities that make this wine such a standout.

“This balanced, energetic cabernet sauvignon presents aromas of currant, raspberry, cherry, plum and blue fruits with notes of cigar box, leather and vanilla. On the palate, dark red fruits gain complexity with suggestions of huckleberry, brambleberry, fresh herbs and baking spices. A compact texture finishes long with silky tannins and fine acidity. From our favorite vineyards, an exemplary rendition of Napa Valley cabernet sauvignon.”

Vintage Notes: The 2019 growing season was marked by much-needed early rainfall, followed by a warm, steady Napa Valley summer. Moderate conditions prevailed through harvest, teasing out vibrancy and structure in the cabernet sauvignon fruit from the John Anthony estates, throughout the Valley, as displayed in this John Anthony Napa Valley AVA series release.

“The 2018 vintage marks the second micro-production vineyard designate from this windswept hillside estate in the Oak Knoll District. Fresh red and black fruits complement a mineral core with notes of dark chocolate, pipe tobacco and black peppercorn. A rich texture displays concentrated flavors of ripe berries, black currant, cherry and mocha. Fine-grained tannins set the pace for a commanding finish. Twisted Oak is one of the first vineyards that John planted and this wine shows why it merits a special place in our portfolio.”

Vintage Notes: The 2018 growing season in the Oak Knoll District of Napa Valley was one for the ages—long, steady and seamless with a mild summer leading into harvest. The extended hang time allowed our Twisted Oak cabernet sauvignon to reach peak physiological ripeness, fostering a balance of elegance and opulence.

“This John Anthony Reserve is our finest cabernet sauvignon expression from the 2018 vintage, selected and blended from exemplary barrels. For the 2018 vintage we selected fruit predominantly from the head-trained, dry-farmed vines at Coombsville Vineyard, with a complement from the rocky, hillside terrain of Twisted Oak Vineyard. Aromas of blackberry, black cherry and black fig yield to cherry woodsmoke and star anise. Flavors of blackberry cobbler, sunned boysenberry and cassis reveal hints of violet, licorice and pencil lead. Polished tannins evolve with energy into a long, expansive finish. Ample structure and acidity promise to reward careful aging."

Vintage Notes: The 2018 cabernet sauvignon harvest was ideal across John Anthony’s Napa Valley estates. A mild summer was followed by a warm but temperate October, resulting in a long growing season that provided the wines with richness, structure and finesse.
