Tasting Notes
Appearance: 

Dark purple color in the glass.

Aroma: 

A dynamic bouquet of stewed plums, melted chocolate, licorice, crème de cassis and a touch of wild sage.

Palate: 

This is an elegant and refreshing wine with a delicately grained texture. The palate is densely packed with tightly wound layers and the finish has fantastic length and depth.  

Winemaking
Vintage Notes: 

The Surrealist by JCB is a wine that has never been done before as a blend from the Napa Valley – seductive, lush and opulent, rich yet silky with an eternal finish… A union of powerful Petit Verdot from high elevation hillsides in eastern Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon from St. Helena – known for Cabernets of femininity, elegance and grace. The wine is a surrealistic expression of our dreams for the ultimate Napa red wine.
