The Jack is Saviah Cellars’ red table wine. This merlot dominant blend started about six years back as a non-vintage offering and is now in its fourth vintage.
The 2007 Jack continues Saviah’s tradition of excellence. This is a very enjoyable wine at a great price point. Look over your shoulder for the police if you find it on sale.
|Saviah Cellars The Jack Columbia Valley 2007|| Surprisingly light in color, especially considering the wallop this wine packs. An appealing, evolving nose that opens with black pepper, dark fruit, cedar and traces of black licorice. Over time, the licorice becomes more prominent. Full bodied on the taste with a great lick of tannins. Vaynerchuck’s oak monster makes a brief appearance, although for me it works. 86% Merlot; 6% Cabernet; 4% Cab Franc; 2% Syrah; 2% Petite Verdot. 14.1% alcohol. 4777 cases produced.
Purchased at Pete’s Bellevue for $11.99.
