Products Offered

Reds
1. 2016 Cabernet Franc, Napa Valley, Stagecoach Vineyard
Darjean Jones 2016 Cabernet Franc is our fourth vineyard designate bottling from Stagecoach Vineyard. This rocky, mountainous terrain resulted in a medium-bodied wine bold with concentrated flavors of blackberry, cocoa and tart red cherry. Refined tannins, an edgy herbaceous note and high acid make this wine the perfect paring for a wide variety of foods.

2. 2016 Pathologiē® Proprietary Red RESERVE
Darjean Jones 2016 Pathologie® exists in a realm where the unconventional is expected and the abnormal is exalted. It is the antithesis of tradition. Pathologie® is an inspired proprietary red wine skillfully blended to celebrate the point at which we diverge.

Aged for nearly two years in French oak, this stunning proprietary red wine rests in bottle for an additional year before release, resulting in a seamlessly polished wine that abides by no boundaries. It simply and expertly exemplifies the unrivaled preeminence of Napa Valley and Sonoma County terroir.

3. 2014 Merlot, Napa Valley, Broken Rock Vineyard
Darjean Jones 2014 Merlot hails from a single vineyard located on the eastern ridge of Napa Valley at the base of Atlas Peak. This deep garnet colored wine is intense with mouth-filling blackberry and boysenberry overtones. Its fruit forward flavors and refined spices give this vintage a liveliness from start to velvety finish. Well-developed structure and integrated tannins will allow this unique wine room to age, yet the subtle traces of earthiness and immediate approachability make this unique wine share-worthy now.

Whites/Rosé
4. 2018 Dawna Rosé
Darjean Jones "Dawna" Rosé is ripe with inviting aromas of strawberry and honeysuckle. Vibrant acidity and luscious flavors of raspberry and candied apple tease the palate, creating a food friendly wine blended to enjoy all year long. A spiced, juicy finish seals this 2018 vintage with a kiss.

5. 2016 Chardonnay, Sonoma Coast
Darjean Jones 2016 Chardonnay is aged in the traditional French style, “sur lie,” remaining in contact with the lees throughout barrel aging. This medium-bodied white exhibits flavors of green apple, pear and stone fruit. It has a strong mineral backbone and well balanced acidity. Our Chardonnay goes through full malolactic fermentation, producing a wine with savory hints of brioche and a roundness that makes this vintage very approachable. Enjoy with salmon, roasted poultry, butter cream sauces or simply on its own.

6. 2016 Viognier, Russian River Valley, Catie's Corner Vineyard
Darjean Jones single vineyard Viognier hails from Catie's Corner in the Russian River Valley. Our small block of Viognier is farmed using sustainable viticultural practices. Foggy mornings and evenings helped preserve the balance between attractive natural acidity and sumptuous citrus and floral notes. Our Viognier is crisp and refreshing with a beautiful mouthfeel. Balanced acidity and fresh fruit flavors of pear and guava complete the palate. Great accompaniment to any food or enjoy on its own!
