Jean Edwards Cellars

Jean Edwards Cellars

Karen and John Troisi (who live in Northern New Jersey and travel between there and their home in the Napa Valley) started Jean Edwards Cellars in 2004, and released their first wine in 2006 to pretty high acclaim with the Wine Spectator Magazine naming them as one of "20 new cabernet producers to watch that could be the next cult wines" in their annual cabernet issue. They had some pretty good company on that list including well-known producers Scarecrow, Kapscandy, Ghost Block, MacAuley and Oakville East. The fruit for this wine comes from the Stagecoach Vineyard located on Pritchard Hill on the eastern side of the Napa Valley above Saint Helena. Their particular plot (neighbors with Paul Hobbs) has produced a delicious full-bodied, solid and classically styled Napa Cabernet, deep garnet purple, with lovely dark cassis, plum, cedar and earth notes, hints of tobacco and vanilla and a delicious thread of dark chocolate on the palate. Aged 24 months in French Oak, the wine is 92% cabernet sauvignon and 8% cabernet franc - velvety in the mouth and finishes nicely with sweet, oaky tannins. Full bodied and California power but not at all over the top, this wine has a balance and fineness that so many of the huge framed super expensive Napa Cabs seem to lack. Drinkable now, especially with a decant, it will continue to gain complexity with additional cellaring for 5-10 years. Production was a mere 250 cases.
