JaM Cellars – JaM Cabernet Sauvignon

jam-wine-2Our featured wine for May 2019 comes from California’s JaM Cellars. The winemaker specializes in fruit forward wines, and this Cabernet Sauvignon is no exception.

The wine maker’s tasting notes promise “blackberries, black plums, black currant, cassis and more”. But it’s not entirely about the fruit, JaM ages this Cabernet Sauvignon in oak for smoothness and a hint of vanilla.

Wine Enthusiast awards Jam 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon a 90 point score, describing it as a:

“…bold and full-bodied wine does have a jammy character like well-ripened blackberries, but it stops short of sweetness. It shows a lot of fruit concentration, mild oak spices and a good velvety layer of tannin to make it lip-smacking.

If you’re a fan of fruit forward wines, or quality California wines in general, consider given JaM Cabernet Sauvignon a try.
