John Anthony Vineyards

"This dense ruby-hued cabernet sauvignon leads with wildly-aromatic black and red currants and floral notes of violet, lavender and rose. Cracked pink peppercorn and savory spices give further depth to the aromatics. On the palate sumptuous blackberries and ripe Bing cherries meld with hints of kola nut, cordovan leather and dark mole. Wonderful tannin structure carries decadent layers of chocolate raspberry cake and crème de cassis into a long, lingering finish."

"The debut vintage of this cabernet sauvignon from the Calistoga AVA, Napa Valley comes from deep, fertile slopes of our small, 10-acre estate in the northeastern Calistoga benchlands. Red winter fruit aromas of plum and pomegranate are tinged with hints of tobacco leaf and old leather. The palate is focused with cassis, wild blue flowers and dusty minerality opening to brambly berries, cocoa nib and holiday spices. The texture is sturdy with dusty tannins and a broad, enveloping finish."

"The twenty-five year old vines I planted in 1996 on the Crane Vineyard continue to produce merlot with expressive maturity. Raspberry bread pudding, mint and mocha aromas. The fruit is powerful and well complemented with spice, displaying energy and elegance. Notable structure in this vintage. Layered flavors of black cherry, blueberry compote and dried pomegranate with baking spices, blue flowers and cocoa. The tannins soften to round edges on the palate, giving way to a silky finish."

“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.

Displaying notable structure, the tannins soften to round edges on the palate, giving way to a silky finish. The 2018 vintage is a beautiful balance of energy and elegance."

“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.

"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."

“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.

"The first release of our celebrated hillside vineyard in the foothills of the Mayacamas mountain range, the Twisted Oak Vineyard in Oak Knoll District. The purity of fruit, aromatic complexity and broad structure from this well drained mountainside vineyard offering is distinct from all our single vineyard cabernet sauvignons. A bouquet of black and red berries and stone fruit, licorice and cedar. The flavors are deep and explosive. Bramble berry, Morello cherry and pomegranate layered with lilac, dark chocolate and dusty crushed stone. Bracing acidity and the grainy tannins evolve to a long, velvety finish."
