Product Description

Jada Hells Kitchen is made from Paso Robles 60% Syrah, 20% Grenache, 16% Graciano, 3% Viognier, 1% Tannat.

Even at 60% Syrah, this wine still places Grenache in the limelight. A decadent nose of cherries and candied flowers opens to darker, earthier notes of garrigue, cola, and graphite. The wine aged for 16 months in mostly 350L and 500L barrels, with only 15% new, French oak. The finish is long, with subtle traces of sweet tobacco and cedar, and layered, fine tannins.

The wine takes its name from an area on the West-side of Manhattan that still exists today. The TV show did not come up with that name, although the producers have purchased several cases of this wine. It was an area initially populated by slaves and then immigrants from all over the world upon their arrival in New York. It is also the neighborhood in which Jack's parents met and fell in love and it has become one of Jada's most well-known and popular labels to-date.

The Hell’s Kitchen was blended from five separate fermentations ranging from 8 to 14 days for the Syrah, 17 days for the Grenache, and 39 days for Graciano. Syrah lends density and dark fruit to the blend, with Grenache adding additional structure and bright, red fruit aromatics. Aging for 16 months in a mixture of 500L, 350L, and 228L formats and a small amount of medium plus and heavy toast barrels. (15% new french oak, 85% neutral oak)

Review:

"A blend of 60% Syrah, 20% Grenache, 16% Graciano, 3% Viognier, and 1% Tannat, the 2017 Hell's Kitchen spent 16 months in 15% new French oak. It has a beautiful bouquet of black fruits, crushed violets, ground pepper, and licorice. These carry to a medium to full-bodied, opulent Syrah that's packed with sweet fruit and offers terrific purity, sweet tannins, and a great finish. Drink this hedonistic fruit bomb over the coming 7-8 years."

Winery: Jada Vineyard and Winery

Jada Vineyard lies in a incredible pocket of the Templeton Gap/Willow Creek District, blessed with cooling coastal air and abundant sunshine throughout the growing season. With sustainability and minimizing their environmental footprint a focus of their winegrowing program, Jada has embraced organic and biodynamic farming techniques and last year, received a SWEEP grant from the CDFA for their commitment to sustainability.

To their winemaker, Josh Harp, the beauty of the land here is found beneath the surface and it's the reason the Messina Family, back in 1999, purchased this 95 acre hillside estate on the West-side of Paso Robles. Under a shallow topsoil of clay loam lie massive deposits of calcareous shale and pockets of limestone. This challenging environment contributes to reduced vigor in the vines and decreased berry size, which plays a huge part in the intensity of their fruit and imparts a complex underlying minerality to their wines. Harvest at Jada generally begins near the end of September and the beginning of October allowing for a long maturation process that results in superb development of color & intensity in character while maintaining acidity.

Jada's approach has always been one of "sustainable excellence" - avoiding short-cuts and focusing on those improvements that would increase wine quality year after year. They are proud today to celebrate their 13th vintage making estate wines, their 95th "90/+" wine rating, and their 11th anniversary, since opening the Tasting Room doors in 2008.

Currently, the ranch is planted to 48 acres of Rhone and Bordeaux varietals, making under 5,000 cases to support the Wine Club and Tasting Room. All you have to do to be a part of this amazing effort is sit back, relax, sip, and enjoy!

Jada Jersey Girl 2017

Jada Jersey Girl is made from 88% Syrah, 9% Viognier, 3% Graciano.

Deep in color with lengthy, mouthwatering aromatics. Ripe blackberries and blueberries with intriguing notes of citrus and stone fruit, surely from the Viognier in this blend, are perfectly in balance with grilled meats, delicate barrel spice, and rich chocolate. The finish is as elegant as the nose, with silky tannins and soft acidity.

The wine has been named in honor of Jack, the owner's lovely wife, Robyn, who was born in New Jersey. Jack loves both Bruce Springsteen’s and Tom Wait’s versions of “Jersey Girl” and don't be surprised if you hear it frequently in the tasting room. It is a great song and Robyn is a great woman, mother, and wife.


At the core of the Jersey Girl is a co-fermentation of Syrah and Viognier, made possible by the similar ripening period for the Viognier and the Estrella clone of Syrah from the Jada Vineyard. This Côte-Rôtie style fermentation adds huge aromatic potential and tannic structure to the blend. In 2017, one other clone of Syrah (383) and Graciano were added to the blend for additional color, spice, and earthy notes. Fermentations ranged from 8 to 23 days using pump-overs in the first third of the fermentation and gentle punch-downs for the remaining time. Aging for 16 months in a combination of large format barrels and special toasts were used to increase structure and highlight varietal characteristics. (21% new french oak, 79% neutral oak)

Review:

"The 2017 Syrah Jersey Girl is a Syrah-dominated blend that includes 10% Viognier. Brought up in 21% new French oak, its deep purple color is followed by notes of blackberries, toasted spice, cured meats, pepper, and hints of chocolate. Ripe, rounded, and supple on the palate, with a savory, meaty character, it's beautifully balanced, has fine tannins, and a great finish."

Jada Sawbones 2017

SALE!

Jada Sawbones is made from Paso Robles 44% Cabernet Sauvignon, 42% Syrah, 14% Petit Verdot.

A seamless fusion of the best Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah lots from Jada Estate Vineyard. Currants, blackberries, pencil shavings, and clove meet ripe strawberry, chocolate and fresh minerality. Full-bodied with balanced tannin and a persistently fruity finish, the wine is supported by plenty of acidity.

SAWBONES is slang for a surgeon and doctor. Jada's founder and owner, Jack Messina, was a cardiovascular & thoracic surgeon for over 40 years so when Josh and the winemaker at the time were going back and forth about a new wine to showcase their Cab & Syrah programs, Josh decided on this tribute to his father to represent the many years of love and devotion Jack has given to ountless patients and families throughout his long career.


In 2017 they combined multiple small-lot fermentations of Syrah and a co-fermentation of Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. The Cabernet Sauvignon is from clone 337 only, chosen to compliment the Syrah in this blend with dark and aromatic fruit, higher acidity, and deep color. The Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot co-fermentation spent 9 days in tank before pressing to avoid excessive tannin, whereas the Syrah fermentations averaged 16 days. All varieties were triple sorted with multiple green passes in the vineyard, cluster sorting, and a final berry sorting before gravity-filling each tank. Aging for 18 months in 225L Barrels (54% New French Oak, 36% Once Used French Oak).

Review:

"The 2017 Sawbones checks in as 44% Cabernet Sauvignon, 42% Syrah, and 14% Petit Verdot that spent 18 months in 54% new French oak. Its deep purple color is followed by stunning notes of blackcurrants, cassis, lead pencil shavings, chocolate, and crushed rocks. Pure, full-bodied, loaded with sweet fruit, and beautifully balanced, it's one hedonistic yet elegant beauty from this team that knocks it out of the park.”

Jada Strayts 2017

Jada Strayts is made from Paso Robles   51% Merlot, 19% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Petite Sirah, 13% Petit Verdot, 3% Malbec.

One of the most challenging yet rewarding grapes to grow on the Jada Estate Vineyard, Merlot still dominates this blend at 51% of the volume. Bright cherry and plum with balanced barrel spice, black pepper, clove and dried tea leaves. Creamy, milk chocolate mouthfeel and refreshing acidity on the finish.

Strayts refers to the Straits of Messina, a body of water that separates Italy from the Sicily and the city from which they get their family name. For those literary scholars amongst you, it may have been the inspiration for the legend of Scylla and Charybdis, described by Homer in the Odyssey. No sea monsters or whirlpools here.

The Strayts is a Merlot-focused blend, using Merlot from one block in the Jada Estate Vineyard. The block encompasses elevation changes over 75 feet, as well as soil types ranging from calcareous to deep, clay loam. The 2017 vintage demanded multiple picks on this block, starting 9/14/2017 and ending 10/6/2017, to see proper maturity throughout. Fermentations in this blend ranged from 14 to 19 days using a combination of pump-overs and hand punch-downs. The blend is aged in mostly medium toast barrels to preserve delicate aromatics, while supporting the richness and spice of the Merlot. Aging for 15 months (31% 500L barrels, 69% 225L barrels) in 53% New French Oak, 47% Neutral Oak.

Review:

"The Merlot-dominated cuvée, the 2017 Strayts is a blend of 51% Merlot, 19% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Petite Sirah, 13% Petit Verdot, and 3% Malbec. Notes of black cherries, toasted spice, dried earth, underbrush, and graphite notes all flow to a medium-bodied, rounded, supple wine that has good tannins, outstanding balance, and a charming, character-filled style."

Alain Jaume Domaine du Clos de Sixte Lirac 2017


Alain Jaume Domaine du Clos de Sixte Lirac  is made from 50% Grenache, 35% Syrah, 15% Mourvedre

An intense red garnet color. On the nose, aromas of red and black ripe fruit (kirsch and wild blackberry). The mouth is full, with aromas of blackcurrant liqueur and spice. Tannins are both harmonious and elegant thanks to the fleshiness of the wine. Hints of licorice and vanilla on the finish, which gives the wine length and complexity.

Soil type LIRAC vineyard is facing Chateauneuf du Pape, opposite side of the Rhône river. As showed by the picture and following geologist George Truc, soils are almost similar in both side. They are marked by the violence wrought by the Rhone river. It consists of a layer of marine molasses of the Miocene period covered by alpine alluvium. The presence of a great number of rounded stones known as "galets" in the earth is evidence of the time when the Rhone, then a torrent, tore fragments of rock from the Alps and deposited them on the plain. LIRAC is one of the up-coming best area from the southern Rhône valley, as it delivers outstanding wines. Winemaking & ageing Traditional wine-making in stainless still vats. Hand sorted bunches, crushed and destemmed grapes. Fermentation temperature : 30°C. 18 days of vatting with pigeages.

 


Review:

"The Lirac from this estate is the 2017 Lirac Clos de Sixte. It's another deep purple-colored effort offering powerful notes of ripe black cherries, melted licorice, violets, and pepper. Full-bodied, forward, ripe, and flamboyantly styled, it's packed with fruit and texture. Drink it over the coming 4-6 years."
- Jeb Dunnuck (August16th 2019), 92 pts


"Juicy and compact still, with concentrated plum and black currant paste flavors coated with licorice and backed by a roasted alder spine. Lingering bay and menthol hints too. Drink now through 2026. 3,000 cases made, 1,800 cases imported. - JM"
