Winemaker Notes
The grapes for this Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon were hand harvested, hand sorted and gently crushed at Girard Winery. The juice and skins were cold soaked for five days prior to the must, undergoing a native yeast fermentation. Once fermentation was complete, the wine underwent an extended maceration to allow for softer, more well-integrated tannins. Malolactic fermentation occurred in barrel as part of its 22 months in 60% new French oak. The wine was bottled unfined and unfiltered.
Winemaker Name
Marco DiGiulio

The New York Jets have teamed-up with renowned Napa Valley winemaker Marco DiGiulio to create a sophisticated, limited-edition Cabernet Sauvignon. This vintage offers lush, ripe flavors of red cherries, currants and berries, framed by supple tannins, and just enough oak to add complexity without obscuring the purity of the fruit. The long spicy finish is an invitation for another sip.

Jets Uncorked is a reflection of both the singular vineyards from which it originates and the passion of the people involved in bringing it to you.
