2020 J. Wilkes Cabernet 

80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, and 10% Petite Verdot

Aged in 40% new French and American oak barrels for 15 months. 

 

An accomplished sailor, grape grower, and vintner with a passion for wine and a deep love of the ocean, Jeff Wilkes knew whole-heartedly the winemaking potential of California’s Central Coast. After selling wine grapes for the Miller Family for nearly 20 years, Jeff started crafting his own wine under his namesake J. Wilkes.

J. Wilkes sources its grapes from 4 revered regions known for their unique terroirs, all shaped by a reliable oceanic system – Santa Maria Valley, Paso Robles Highlands, Santa Rita Hills, and Ballard Canyon. The vineyards of these regions bask in the California sun while a reliable Pacific breeze keeps their grapes cool, giving them longer growing seasons and the perfect environment for a range of varietals to thrive. 

Aromas of blackberry and blueberry along with vanilla and spice on the finish from the oak aging. A lush, complex wine with multiple layers of blue, black, and red fruit including blackberry and cassis with beautifully integrated tannins and a long, slightly rich finish. Pair with Beef Stir-Fry with Fresh & Pickled Ginger, Roasted Vegetables, Lamb Chops with Spring Peas, or adorn a charcuterie board with Aged Semi-Hard Cheeses like Aged Cheddar or Gouda. Will age for the next 5-7 years. Decant 15-20 Minutes
