All Jarvis wines are produced from estate vineyards, located four miles to the east of the city of Napa, in the beautifully rugged mountains between Mt. George and Milliken Canyon at the southeastern end of the Napa Valley. The vineyards are planted in gently sloping meadows one thousand feet above the valley floor. As the cool maritime air passes over the Carneros flats and begins flowing into the valley, it falls about seven degrees in temperature for the thousand feet of vertical rise. As such, the vineyards tend to be cooler by several degrees than the famous nearby Carneros region! These cooler temperatures allow a long "hang time," permitting a long, slow fruit maturation for maximum flavor and concentration at harvest.
The 1994 vintage was an exceptional one for JARVIS Cabernet Sauvignon. A long Indian Summer allowed the 1994 Cabernet Sauvignon an even longer hang-time than usual, providing Dimitri Tchelistcheff, our winemaker, with grapes of maximum ripeness and complexity. Twenty-four months of aging in new French oak barrels provided the beautiful toasty vanilla character in the fruit intense aroma of this wine. Velvety richness and lush berry flavors on the palate lead to this wine’s long elegant finish... - Winemaker notes (1994 vintage)
