Special guest wine from the Jax Winery.

Come sample wine with us on
Wednesday, August 1st, 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
at Apotheque Spa | 322 North Cleveland Street, Oceanside Ca 92054

Join us and Winery Ambassador Jen Moore to taste authentic wines and appetizers.

The wine list includes:
Jax Y3 rose of Pinot Noir
As eternal rosé lovers, we have always wanted to craft a gem of our own. The key to such a creation would be the ideal vineyard, which we found at the highest acclaimed source in the Russian River Valley. The next step would be the winemaking technique. Harvesting the vineyard in the early morning hours to preserve acidity, the fruit was whole-cluster pressed and fermented in 100% stainless steel. With minimal skin contact, this delicate rosé offers a bone-dry style accompanied by a touch of weight and complexity.

Jax Y3 Pinot Noir
For many years, we have looked at Pinot Noir as a distant fantasy....a varietal that we always loved but knew would be a difficult tackle. Not only is it a highly finicky grape requiring a milder climate, but also we know that Pinot lovers are “die-hard” fans wed to a very specific style. As hot climate Napa Valley vintners, we knew that we could not force our hand until the opportunity presented itself. Fast forward and along came our CEO Dan Parrott who had worked with some of the best producers in Burgundy before jumping on board at JAX. Dan inspired us to find the right vineyard and achieve a killer pinot!

Jax Y3 Taureau
The name Taureau was the name of the Jackson family’s prized bull, legendary for his feisty, high-kicking and vibrant personality. When perfecting this wine at their blending session, the JAX team concurred that the character of their infamous bull reflected the structure and elements of this indulgent red blend... and what a perfect tribute to their family ranching legend.

This wine is what one would expect with a name like Taureau. Boasting incredible purple fruit colors, the flavors of blackberry, black cherry and red fruit ooze into the palate, all supported by polished tannins. Balanced and delicious, this wine should drink well upon release until 2022 or longer.

Jax Y3 Chardonnay
Y3. Or as you may ask, why not? After all, the beauty of this wine runs far deeper than the label. Celebrating three generations of land-tilling, wine-loving Jacksons, siblings Kimberly and Trent are proud to present Y3, a wine as special as the memories of their grandparents at Yarrayne Ranch.

In our humble wine-obsessed opinion, many Napa Valley Chardonnays tend to be over-styled with excessive butter and oak. But as the Jackson siblings know (through lots of “testing”), an outstanding Chardonnay owes its success to outstanding fruit, not a heavy style. We think you’ll agree.

JAX Y3 Sauvignon Blanc
Y3. Or as you may ask, why not? After all, the beauty of this wine runs far deeper than the label. Celebrating three generations of land-tilling, wine-loving Jacksons, the family is proud to present Y3, a wine as special as the memories of their grandparents at Yarrayne Ranch. 

Summers get hot in Calistoga and it was on such a feverish day that siblings Kimberly and Trent found inspiration for this wine. The aim was simple: Make a clean and refreshing wine while representing a true to varietal Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc.
