100% Cabernet Sauvignon
Winemaking Notes: Aged in 100% French oak - 65% new barrels - aged for 19 months
For Jean-Charles Boisset, the N°1 Cabernet Sauvignon must not only age well into the future, it must be VOLUPTUOUS in the present. It must have a commanding structure, yet have flavors that are OPULENT. But above all, N°1 must always have a dramatic personality. It is never tamed and predictable. N°1 is INCORRIGIBLE.
Tasting Notes: The 2014 JCB N°1 Cabernet Sauvignon is an opaque purple color with graphite, blackberry, and Asian spice aromas. Opening with intense fruit flavors, this is a full-bodied wine with layered nuances of white chocolate, licorice and dark fruit. What The Number 1 Signifies: The N°1 signifies Jean-Charles' vision of the penultimate wine, and the first Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon that he ever created - a wine that embraces the power of Napa Valley with the elegance of his native Burgundy. JCB N°1 reflects the true elegance and refinement of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon - a rare jewel in any wine collection, there can only truly ever be one N°1
