Caressa J 2016
A famous wine maker once said, “Wine is a passion, it’s family and friends. It’s warmth of heart and generosity of spirit.” This captures the spirit of our wine and describes perfectly the character in which it was made.
Caressa J is named after my three daughters, Venessa, Cara, and Jenna. Our Climate, with its warm days and cool nights, is perfect for the grapes. During harvest, we focus on phenolic ripening and longer hang times, giving rise to a rich and elegant wine with refined and polished tannins. The sangiovese grapes offer intense floral and spice aromas while the Cabernet grapes balance the wine with dense layers of fruit. On the palate it is weightly, dense, and vibrant with complex structure thanks to the support of the acidity. With passionate preperation this wine has developed into a robust, full bodied wine. When I went to the Superbowl with the Los Angeles Rams I thought, “It doesn’t get better than this”, Now I feel that way about Caressa J. Salute!
