"Leading the charge is the 2017 James Berry Vineyard. For those of you lucky enough to have experienced the JBV over the years, I’d say this one ranks right up there in the top echelon, and it may be the most open of any vintage yet. Of course it will improve with some age, let’s not get hasty here! But I do think this one is generous in its youth. Like all of our 2017 wines, the tannins are very smooth and fine, no hard edges to be found. Though it’s the aromatics that really draw you in. Red fruit centered, really lifted and bright, yet there’s a background of chaparral and sagebrush providing some low notes too… I could smell this wine all day. There’s a kiss of French oak, 48% spent 21 months in new puncheons and the remaining rested in used foudres or puncheons. The real fun is opening this wine next to the 2016 JBV or the 2017 G2V and choosing a favorite." - Justin Smith, Saxum
