Tasting Notes

Appearance: 

With a texture like a velvet jacket.

Aroma: 

The JCB N° 11 greets you with a bright and light, approachable presence. You are immediately intrigued by a mellow earthiness on the nose, reminiscent of the older vineyards in the hills of the southern Sonoma Coast.

Palate: 

The wine opens up to reveal notes of currant, dried cherry and currants. As you begin to sip on this old world style Pinot Noir, you are enticed by the notes of cassis, tangy dried cranberry and the continued note of dried cherry. The structure, mouth coating mid-palate, and lingering dry finish imply great ageability.

Winemaking

Vintage Notes: 

What The Number 11 Signifies: For Jean-Charles, the age of 11 was a magical time in life, an age of endless possibilities and burgeoning dreams. Inevitably, the number 11 became the number behind the wine, one of his favorite Pinot Noirs, and a reminder of an enchanting time in life.
