March 31st issue, WINE SPECTATOR

by MaryAnn Worobiec


"Jada, out of Paso Robles, already has a track record of impressive reds, but its whites have also caught my attention."


"The XCV Paso Robles 2013 (91, $35) blends Roussanne, Grenache Blanc and Viognier for a bold, intense and fragrant white. Winemaker David Galzignato basket-presses the fruit, uses native yeast fermentation and employs a long skin contact, cold maceration and concrete eggs to preserve aromatics and freshness. The end result is a wine incredibly pure in fruit flavor, showing notes of pear, peach and melon . . ."
