Notes from the Winemaker:

The first Jillian’s Blend, from the 2005 vintage, was composed of cabernet and syrah. With the 2007 we added some Suscol Merlot to the final blend, adding a nice layer of bright, soft fruit to the cabernet and syrah components. Jillian is Rebecca Laird’s daughter.

What Does It Taste Like?

The color combines deep purple and reddish hues. On the nose is an enticing floral aroma of red roses, along with an attractive earthiness. The palate is alive with cherry, currant, red plums, sweet vanilla bean and an intriguing blood orange zest. This wine’s finish is lengthy and delicious. Serve with roasted pork loin with a caramelized, sweet onion red wine reduction sauce.


Ratings & Reviews

91 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Fresh, clean aromas of toasty oak, espresso, ripe dark berries and mocha are focused, tapered, full-bodied and complex on the palate, returning to the same flavor themes on the finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Merlot. Drink now through 2020. 825 cases made." –JL (10/31/2010)
