A blockbuster Californian red wine blend of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Petit Verdot grapes. Rich and layered, the 2015 JCB Passion Proprietary Red features aromas of fleshy ripe blackberries, bacon fat, pencil led, dried herbs and mocha. Long, satisfying finish. Pair with a rare steak.

Cabernet Sauvignon Petit Verdot food pairings: slow-braised beef brisket, roast chicken, bison burgers.

Reviews and Ratings

Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Intense red fruit, spice and oak in a full-bodied red. Enjoy with a rare steak from the barbeque.
Tasted Oct. 2018
Jcb's Passion 2015 is produced by Jean-Charles Boisset and is a juicy medium-plus-bodied red wine blend of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Petit Verdot. Deep, dark ruby-violet in the glass, this is meaty red with black currant, smoked meat and garrigue herbs on the nose and palate. Great acidity for food, pair with smoked meats and braised ribs dishes. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
