Tasting Notes

Named to honor our partners Mike and Jackie Bezos who have eleven nietos (Spanish for grandchildren), this wine has become one of John's personal favorites to create. 54% Mourvèdre and 46% Syrah, the 2016 Nietos features Stillwater Creek Vineyard fruit. We also included a touch of Boushey Syrah which adds savory notes to the finished wine. Fine tannins contribute to its lingering finish.

 

Mike Bezos, or as his badge at the winery reads, “Miguel”, was born in Cuba.  As a teenager he became a Cuban refugee in the US while the rest of his family remained in Cuba.  Mike’s story is both inspirational and moving, so much so that The Smithsonian Institute included it as part of the National Museum of American History.  Nietos celebrates Mike and Jackie and the generosity they have shown so many, including all of us at JM Cellars.   Read about Mike's story here!
