Joel Gott Palisades CA Red Wine

Tasting Notes

The Joel Gott 2018 Palisades Artist Series red wine has aromas of cherry pie and roasted coffee with notes of vanilla and spice. On the palate, bright cherry flavors lead to smooth tannins and subtle acidity on the mid-palate with notes of spice on the long, delicate finish.

Joel Gott Palisades CA Red Wine


Cabernet Sauvignon


Petit Verdot


California – Napa Valley, Mendocino, Lake County, Monterey, Santa Barbara


1-Year-Old American Oak

2-Year-Old French Oak

To make a well-balanced red wine, we blended Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Petit Verdot from five different appellations in California. Fruit from Napa Valley lends complexity while Mendocino fruit gives the wine its color and rich, ripe fruit flavors. Lake County adds structured tannins and minerality while smaller, more concentrated fruit clusters from Monterey offers fruit-forward notes. Vineyards in Santa Barbara experience cool, foggy mornings and warmer afternoons, bringing out well-developed fruit flavors and balanced acidity in the grapes.

Across California in 2018, the growing season was long and even, with moderate winter rains resulting in later than usual bud break. Warm spring temperatures followed by a midsummer heat wave and cooler temperatures in the fall, caused us to pick our fruit a little later than in previous years. These conditions allowed fruit to ripen evenly at a steady pace, making for a well-balanced wine

After fermentation, the wine was aged in 1-year-old American oak and 2-year-old French oak to complement the flavors and tannins of the wine and soften the mid-palate.
