Tasting Notes

Each year I choose my favorite four to five barrels of wine of the vintage to create a special wine in honor of JM’s original wine club established fifteen years ago.  Named the Founder’s Club, the wine we made annually for this special group was named Founder’s Reserve.  A good friend suggested we name the 2015 vintage Founder’s Legacy in their honor – we couldn’t be happier to acknowledge those who have been loyal friends to all of us at JM Cellars over the years.

94 Points    2012 Founders Reserve, Red Mountain

Possibly the greatest wine I’ve tasted from this estate, the 2012 Founder’s Reserve is a head-turner that’s 75% Cabernet Sauvignon and 25% Cabernet Franc, all from Red Mountain, that spent 36 months in new French oak. Flat out gorgeous on the nose, with classic cassis and black raspberry fruits, graphite, toasted spice and toasty oak, it hits the palate with full-bodied richness, ripe tannin and first rate purity. It can be drunk today or cellared for 10-15 years.


92 Points     2013 Founders Reserve, Red Mountain

"Cabernet Sauvignon makes up three-quarters of this wine, with the balance Cabernet Franc. Aromas of vanilla, cocoa, flowers and black cherry are followed by dense palate-coating black-fruit flavors. It possesses a lovely sense of texture, with firmly structured yet surprisingly approachable tannins.”
