    March 17, 2019 - Brief note. Better than a month ago immediately out of the bottle. Rich and berry driven, viscous, the right amount of peppery tannin. Makes me wonder more about this vintage. I think in an hour this wine will increase in its acidic profile. This wine will not last and drinks better quickly and not decanted nor laid for hours opened.

    February 18, 2019 - Here is a wine which has all of the tools for a great wine. The Viscosity, color and mouthfeel are awesome. At the mid palette a tinge of bright and tinny fruit appear. On the finish this wine begins to be dominated by sour fruits and even more sour acidity which makes me wonder if they picked rotted berries.

    I then think .... no way! Thomas R Brown is far more selective than that.

    That said I want to believe it just a bad year. Avoid this vintage.

    October 29, 2015 - Quite green, lacking on the mid palate and not enough fruit (given the age) or acidity.

    February 27, 2015 - Winemaker Notes:
    For the first time ever, we are pleased to present the 2011 Jersey Boys Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon! Jersey Boys is a six-acre vineyard that was replanted in 2008 with four different clones of Cabernet Sauvignon, handpicked by our winemaker, Thomas Brown.
    Tasting Notes:
    On first approach, the Jersey Boys Cabernet elicits candied violets and cherry cola aromas. On the palate, red and blue fruits are accompanied by high-toned aromatics of white flowers. ripe, supple tannins and a beautiful finish.
