    • Introducing our 20th vintage of this amazing Napa Valley Cabernet.

Exhibiting a nose of dark cherry and blackcurrant, nuanced with notes of creosote, graphite, cloves and vanilla.  This dense and full bodied wine is layered from the start and finished with powerful coating tannins.  This wine has an incredible oily texture and a multi-dimensional structure with amazing balance, power and sophistication - it is sure to age gracefully for years.

“This 2016 is probably the most dramatically intense and opulent style of CJ to date.  Quite the evolution from a vibrant, youthful style wine to a one that is sophisticated and mature - very much like its namesake Chloe and Jeremy”
~ Philippe and Cherie Melka, proprietors
