Winemker’s Notes: Leading with Merlot, one of Bonterra’s most acclaimed varietals, the wine is also complemented with grapes carefully selected to add complexity. One of the more prominent of these is Petit Sirah, which adds gorgeous color and a rich, rustic element to the blend. The resulting wine offers notes of juicy red and black fruit matched with a patina of intriguing spice, herb and oak tones.
90 Point Wine Enthusiast: A firm texture and big, earthy black-fruit flavors give this full-bodied wine plenty of presence. It tastes of blackberry, cranberry and dark chocolate while it feels tannic and grippy on the palate. Merlot and Petite Sirah are the two main components in the blend.

Winemker’s Notes: J Vineyards’ California Pinot Gris delights with notes of candied pineapple, lemongrass, white peach and jasmine. It is fruit forward with ripe flavors of Anjou pear, yellow apple and lime.
90 Point Wilfred Wong: The 2017 J Vineyards Pinot Gris is impressive and adds another winner amongst the winery’s other stars. It is delicate and refined.
