All of that seems to have paid dividends now. One of the fastest rising stars in California, Jesse Katz’s Bordeaux blends have folks head absolutely spinning.
He was the first winemaker ever to be included in the Forbes 30 Under 30 list, a Wine Enthusiast 40 Under 40 Tastemaker, and had been named a Wine Spectator “Rising Star.”
The 2019 Bordeaux Blend is expertly chiseled with broad shoulders, this promises smooth, complex drinking for decades. But people don’t flock to Jesse Katz’s wines for age-worthy Big Reds, they go for that unparalleled WOW factor and to be inspired and that’s what Katz does with his latest release.

95-97 Points, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
The 2019 Bordeaux Red Blend is composed of 40% Malbec, 34% Merlot, 14% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot. Deep ruby-purple in color, the nose bursts with lilac perfume, Morello cherries, cured meats, star anise, tar and a mineral undercurrent. The palate is pixelated and lifted with glorious perfume lingering on the very long finish.
