A great Meritage in a great vintage year!

The new vintage has just arrived and we had so much success with the last offering, we were able to get a great opportunity for you again!!
93 Points, Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate!

"The 2014 is a beauty, with plenty of finesse, forest floor, floral blueberry notes, silky tannins, medium to full body, high energy, a vibrant mouthfeel, and a long crisp finish with loads of blue and black fruits. It should drink nicely for 15 or more years." 

91 Points, Vinous, Antonio Galloni!
The 2014 Red Wine (Sonoma County) has turned out beautifully. Ripe, luscious and voluptuous to the core, the 2014 exudes richness and concentration. The high percentage of Cabernet Franc give the wine its lifted aromatics, while the Merlot adds softness and juiciness throughout. With a little aeration, the 2014 can be enjoyed with minimal cellaring. The 2014 spent ten months in oak, about 30% new. 

CENYTH is a project from the Jackson Family’s small vineyard estates with the highly respected Bordelais winemaker Pierre Seillan, assisted by his daughter Helene, making the wines from Sonoma County vineyards owned by the Jackson Family.

Cenyth is Middle English for a direction or path taken.

Our thoughts……

Beautiful dark ruby in color, this wine showcases lovely spice notes on the nose. On the palate, this elegant, classic Bordeaux blend demonstrates hints of spice and nutmeg that co-mingle with white pepper flavors in delicate harmony. The finish is long, smooth with very fine tannins, ending with a lingering freshness of fruit.

Hélène’and Pierre Seillan 

Pierre Seillan is best known as a winemaker whose Californian Bordeaux blends, particularly those marketed through the luxe Vérité label ($300-$500 per bottle), have earned multiple 100-point scores from Robert Parker.

Cenyth represents Hélène’s mentorship with her father, world-renowned winemaker Pierre Seillan of Verite fame has three decades of experience in Bordeaux under his belt, including stints in the Loire, Lalande-a-Pomerol and Saint Emilion, before coming to California in 1997. He blends his small micro-cuvées with a preconceived notion of how the wine should taste, ostensibly a Californian wine in a Bordeaux mould. Applying the knowledge and techniques she has observed and learned from her father over a lifetime, Hélène crafted the inaugural 2009 vintage of Cenyth, a Bordeaux- blend from mountain and hillside vineyards in Sonoma County.
As she continues on her path as winemaker, Hélène is using her experience in the vineyards of France and her passion for Sonoma County to define her own style. Through her old and new world experience, she has learned many lessons and important values, but perhaps none are as 
significant as the lessons she continues to learn from her father.

Hélène Seillan spent her childhood in both France and California, surrounded by family and friends for whom winemaking was as much a passion as it was a profession. Following in her father’s footsteps, Hélène pursued a career in winemaking and began splitting her time between Sonoma County and Saint-Émilion. Starting in 2006, she served as assistant winemaker for her father at the family’s Bordeaux estate, where she worked on all aspects of winery management showing the same talent, passion and ability as her father.

 Hélène holds a degree in Viticulture and Oenology from the Institut Rural de Vayres in Bordeaux. When she is not in the vineyards, Hélène likes to indulge her second passion for food and enjoys cooking for friends and family.
