Aged EXCLUSIVELY in 100% new French Oak in the LaGrange Nature (the first barrel of its kind). JCB PHI is DIVINE in its nature, born from the only barrel of its kind that is inspired by the natural world around us… a unique journey from grape to bottle where a MYSTICAL moment in time was spent in total harmony. It’s no wonder the golden ratio inspired this exclusive expression of Cabernet, as its PROPORTIONAL perfection is found in every sip.

"The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Phi, a tiny lot of one barrel, is an exciting wine. Inky and opulent to the core, the 2018 races across the palate with striking richness. Inky fruit, chocolate, espresso, sweet French oak and rose petal build in a Cabernet endowed with unctuous intensity in a decidedly flamboyant style. -- Antonio Galloni"Aroma:
Phi opens with seductive aromas of dark fruits and white flowers.Palate:
Beautiful notes of Blackberry, licorice and cocoa spread across the palate.Vintage Notes:
Optimal weather guided the harvesting, blending and future bottling of this decadent wine, allowing its vibrancy and opulence to shine through. Phi is 100 percent Cabernet Sauvignon, a blend of three sustainably and organically farmed vineyards from Oakville and St. Helena nested appellations. Phi is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, a blend of three sustainably and organically farmed vineyards from Oakville and St. Helena nested appellations. The JCB Phi is the culmination of a dream more than Cabernet aged in a one-of-a-kind barrel designed exclusively for us that matches the divine proportions of the golden ratio... that mystical number whose expression surrounds us in nature, and which is thought to represent ultimate beauty. In our wine, that barrel brings us the absolute harmony between oak and wine, lending that je ne sais quoi that transcends an extraordinary wine to its zenith, its divine expression!
