JCB 2014 Surrealist (Green Giant)

Red Blend
Description

We wanted to create a wine that is surrealistic; 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… An equal 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.

The Surrealist as a wine represents the freedom of our own interpretation of flavors, smells, texture, & senses where each can further interpret independently their own geography of pleasure… May it inspire you to put theory into practice, actuality into fantasy, where the discovery of our creation will spark a surreal event & catalyze an epiphany within you…and yourself…
