2014 J. GREGORY EXTOL PROPRIETARY RED

$95.00

Do you ever look back at an iconic wineries first release price and kick yourself for not loading up?  Just think, when OPUS ONE released their inaugural 1979 vintage and it was $50, and the most expensive California wine at the time.  Now, 36 successful vintages later and it’s $350/btl and still ranks among the most expensive wines in Napa Valley.  You’re not going to find OPUS ONE at $50 ever again, but we just found the next best thing… J Gregory’s is made by Mark Jessup who was on the original winemaking team at OPUS ONE from 1979 through 1987.  His “Extol” Proprietary Red is his version of OPUS ONE…

The 2014 is build around a solid core of 84% Cabernet Sauvignon and dressed with Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petite Verdot.  The favors are penetrating yet supple, and the wine has a regal presence on the palate that takes you to a happy place. The 2014 spent 22 months developing in French oak and it envelopes your taste buds in muddled berries, wild mint, and bakers chocolate.

2014 J. GREGORY EXTOL PROPRIETARY RED

Tasting Notes from Master Sommelier:Everything about this wine projects quality and elegance, from the heavy glass bottle, artistic label and top grade corks to the exquisite wine inside. This masterpiece exudes power, precision and poise and is remarkably balanced and powerful in all the right ways.  Beautifully focused layers of black cherry, red currants and blackberry are framed with sweet pipe tobacco, fresh sage leaf and hints of sweet vanilla and black pepper. The beautifully integrated tannins perfectly balance the red and black fruits, leading to a long, elegant, balanced finish.  What a delight to drink such a gorgeous wine that satisfies on every level.Kevin M.
