From the Producer

J. Daniel Cuvée is deep purple, with intense aromas of blackberries, black cherries, dried herbs and dark chocolate. The flavors add savory notes of game, smoke, anise, and crushed rocks. Full-bodied, rich, powerful, and long, with fine-grained tannins, this is a compelling and enchanting vintage for J. Daniel Cuvée.

Critical Acclaim

JS97 JamesSuckling.com Friday, May 3, 2019

"Love the green olives, blackberries and sweet tobacco. Hints of walnuts and wet earth. Full-bodied yet reserved and very tight with beautiful richness and focus. Dense and exciting. A blend of Oakville and Howell Mountain. Great Napa cab. Try after 2022." (97 pts.)

VN96 Vinous May 2019

"Saturated dark ruby. Very pure but reticent aromas of blackberry, licorice, spices and minerals, complicated by whiffs of violet and leather and a faint medicinal quality. Utterly silky, sweet and fresh on the palate, showing near-perfect balance from the outset. This wonderfully generous fruit bomb is still an infant and yet is a treat to taste today owing to its compelling sweetness and glossy texture. Hints of graphite and warm loam add interest as the wine opens in the glass. Robin Lail describes this wine as “a combination of the opulence of the 2012 and the structure of the ’13,” while general manager Michael Updegraff says it’s “like Cabernet candy.” Finishes with substantial fine-grained, horizontal tannins and outstanding breadth and length. A brilliant wine for a drought year; in fact, Lail’s string of J. Daniel releases from California’s five years of drought (2012 through 2016) represent a new level of excellence for this winery." (96 pts.)

RP100 Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 29th Oct 2018

"One-hundred percent Cabernet Sauvignon aged 20 months in 75% new French oak, the 2016 J Daniel Cuvee is deep garnet-purple in color and offers up exuberant notes of crème de cassis, chocolate-covered cherries, wild blueberries, violets and unsmoked cigars with touches of garrigue, fragrant earth, powdered cinnamon, black olives and tree bark. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is built like a brick house, with a solid frame of firm, grainy tannins and seamless freshness supporting the taut, muscular fruit, finishing long and minerally. 950 cases produced." (100 pts.)

Napa Valley

Napa Valley is California's -- and America's -- most famous and celebrated wine district. Located north of San Francisco, Napa Valley is most famous for its world-class Cabernets and Chardonnays. The region's acclaim officially took off following a 1976 tasting in Paris when renowned judges chose a Napa Chardonnay and Cabernet over top French wines made from the same grapes.

Most wineries in the region produce either a Chardonnay or a Cabernet, and usually it's both. Sauvignon Blanc and Zinfandel are also grown with success in Napa Valley. You'll likely recognize the names of some of the viticultural areas within Napa Valley, including St. Helena, Stag's Leap and Carneros.

California

When it comes to US wine production, California is King. California wines account for almost 90% of all wines produced in the United States each year, and is home to the most celebrated vineyards and producers in the country. California is probably best known for its world-famous Cabernets and Chardonnays, many of which hail from its two most-acclaimed AVAs, Napa Valley and Sonoma County. Other prominent grapes used in California wines include Merlot, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, and Zinfandel (which California made popular).

United States

The United States now ranks fourth in the world in wine production behind, France, Italy, and Spain. While about 90% of that wine is produced in California, other states like Oregon, New York, and Washington are establishing themselves as prime spots for wine production, as well. Just about any variety of wine can be found in production somewhere in the United States.
