8 Wines You’ll Want to Drink Any Time of Year


Rex Pickett – Author of the hit movie Sideways – is a big fan of J. Cage Pinot Noirs

“When I drink J. Cage Pinot Noirs, I go through the rhythms of remembering of why I fell in love with Pinot Noir and why, in celebration of that sometimes obstreperous grape, I wrote Sideways. The rest is history. These wines, like the movie, are well worth the price of admission.”

J. Cage Cellars 2014 Pinot Noir from Fredric Koeppel at Bigger Than Your Head Wine Blog

I’ll say, “Wow,” and “Please, bring on the seared duck breast.”

J. Cage Cellars Nunes Vineyard Pinot Noir 2014, Russian River Valley. 14.5% alc. 119 cases. Deep, vibrant ruby shading to lighter magenta; warm and spicy yet with a dark meditative aura; macerated red currants, cherries and plums, with a touch of cherry skin and pit; loam, briers and brambles; opens to notes of tar, violets and rose petals, pomegranate and sandalwood; a dense and sinewy pinot noir, enlivened by the influence of brisk acidity; elements of lithic dust, some root-like tea and a bare hint of orange rind. I’ll say, “Wow,” and “Please, bring on the seared duck breast.” Excellent.
