John Anthony Vineyards

“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.

"The John Anthony Reserve Chardonnay is our best expression of terroir for this varietal. Produced from the best barrels selected from the vintage, all from one windy, hillside vineyard nestled between Carneros and Coombsville. Eight months in new and neutral French oak with native-yeast, barrel fermentation. Aromas of apple pie, spring flowers and graham cracker. The palate is round yet racy, evolving with flavors of citrus crème brulée, baked pineapple, honeysuckle and chalky minerality."

"Most of the 2017 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon comes from our head-trained, dry-farmed vines in the Coombsville Vineyard, to which we add one barrel from our rocky, hillside Twisted Oak Vineyard. Aromas of boysenberry, huckleberry and black currant with notes of lilac, sweet pepper and graphite. Low yields from these vineyards produce an exceptional wine with intense, compact fruit and expressive tertiary flavors. Black-fruit jam, candied plum and wild berries with a touch of sweet herbs, potpourri and cedar create complexity on the palate. The finish is powerful, lengthy and memorable."

"Selected as the best few barrels of chardonnay from the 2019 vintage. Native yeasts and barrel fermentation provide complexity and character with scents of rich orchard fruit, lemon meringue and toasted coconut. The texture is spry for its weight with progressive layers of baked apple and pear, beeswax and jasmine, vanilla bean and cinnamon butter. This fourth release of the John Anthony Reserve Chardonnay exhibits the terroir from our vineyards more than ever before."

"This third release of Reserve Syrah is a single barrel sourced from Crane Vineyard in Oak Knoll. Generous aromas of wild black and blue fruit and plum sauce tinged with grilled savory herbs and bacon bits. Flavors of boysenberry and blueberry preserves, fresh fig, black olive, anise and grilled game develop slowly throughout a long finish and are especially pronounced when decanted. The palate is broad and commanding with a tension that indicates exceptional aging potential."

"Reminiscent of a Montrachet with its pronounced minerality, structure and harmony. A bouquet of chamomile flowers and toasted hazelnut frame buttered passion fruit, lemon and orange confit. White orchard fruits, brûléed lemon meringue, mint and baking spices provide a full bodied mouthfeel held up by its crisp acidity. The finish is expansive and long, evolving from unctuous to firm."

“Our much anticipated second release of the Reserve Syrah is a selection of the two best barrels from our Oak Knoll District Syrah.  A complex array of red fruit and brambly black fruit with fresh blueberry alongside tones of tanned leather, aged cigar and allspice.  The texture is broad and commanding with a tension that implies significant aging potential. Flavors of fresh fig and blackberry lead into buttery graham cracker pie crust with hints of marzipan in the finish. This wine can be enjoyed now with at least an hour of encouraged decanting. Less than 50 cases produced.”

"Chocolate covered strawberries layered with blueberry and persimmon. Espresso liqueur, tarragon, sweet pipe tobacco and cocoa nib frame the secondary. Hints of wet gravel, fried sage leaves, and white pepper add complexity to this powerhouse wine, mostly from our hillside vineyards. Elegant and assertive oak tones of warm cedar displayed in this statuesque presentation of our Cabernet Sauvignon. Crème de cassis and lavender arise in an exquisitely long finish, affirming the pedigree of our Reserve program."

“This is the top two percent of what we produce: Four barrels of Cabernet Sauvignon from over two hundred barrels produced in the John Anthony Vineyards portfolio, the Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon is the best in show of the 2015 vintage. Dense and utterly complex tones of black, blue and red fruit are all showcased within a frame of potpourri, lead and sweet earthy tones. This is a wine of both elegance and muscle, whose fruit comes from the best of both our hillside and valley floor vineyards.”

“Our inaugural release of the first Reserve wine beyond our Cabernet Sauvignon. This is a select choice of the best barrels from an evolved Chardonnay program that is a great source of pride in our portfolio. Powerful orchard and stone fruit integrated with a creamy core and subtle spice. A mineral driven tension provides great energy to a wine with such depth.”
