2006 High Roller

2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley

High Roller is JAQK's flagship wine. This delicately crafted Cabernet Sauvignon is made from 100% Napa Valley grapes, harvested by hand to allow our winemaker maximum control during the crushing and fermentation processes. The wine is refined with egg whites, then aged in French oak casks in the tradition of the smooth, elegant Bordeaux-style Cabernets. It takes considerably more effort to go this route here in the U.S., but the result is a more complex, more flavorful, more balanced wine. And one that ages extremely well. A wine of this caliber is something that the connoisseur will want to have well represented in his wine cellar. And to help ensure a long life, we've paid particular attention to the bottle that will be it's home. We chose the king of vessels, the mighty Imperiale, and had one custom made for us in Milan, Italy.

The wine begins with a smooth entry leading to a round, concentrated and velvety evolution. There is a lively aspect to the mid-palette, supported by mouth-coating tannins. The finish is refined, elegant, long and showing great balance.

Black Cherry, black currant, ripe plum, cassis, milk chocolate, cloves, toasty oak.

Rutherford Bench, Oakville Bench, and Coombsville. Vineyards that are situated in the southern half of the Napa Valley enjoy a moderate micro-climate due to the influence of the fog and cool breezes that flow north from San Pablo Bay. Warm days coupled with cool nights lead to slow, even ripening, which have created a wine with power and elegance. The grapes for High Roller were cultivated in benchland (51%) and hillside (49%) vineyards, translating to a complex wine with excellent color and ample acidity to pair with a wide array of cuisines. The tannins in High Roller are abundant yet fine-grained, powerful yet elegant.

Hand-harvested / Small-lot fermentations / 3-day cold soak / Attentive extraction/ Minimal manipulation / Blend of maceration times ranging from 14-40 days / Quarterly racking for natural clarification.
