J's mission is to create world-class wines reflecting the rich terroir of Sonoma County's Russian River Valley and to craft wines that enhance special moments in the lives of its customers. There are but a handful of places on earth where fine wine grapes flourish and the resulting wine is clearly exceptional. Sonoma County's Russian River Valley is brimming with such magic. The Russian River Valley is home to J Vineyards & Winery, where we believe the magic of this valley, coupled with fine, handcrafted winemaking technique is a dazzling combination. J Vineyards & Winery was founded in 1986. Judy Jordan, owner and CEO, leads the J Team with a free spirited horizontal management style that emphasizes quality and creativity. Her vision is to weave together the vines of tradition with those of contemporary innovation. J Sparkling Wine is just the beginning. The family of J wines continues to grow with the introduction of still wines including Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris and Chardonnay all from our estate vineyards in the Russian River Valley. We do and shall remain steadfastly devoted to the land whose bounty is gently enhanced by the artistic hand of winemaker Oded Shakked. No sorcery, legerdemain, or sleight of hand…simply the finest winemaking techniques possible.

I rate wines using the 100-points scale. I have used this point system for close to 25 years. I still believe it is the simplest way to rate a wine, with its origins from grade school in the United States. A wine that I rate 90 points or more is outstanding (A), and worth buying. If I rate a wine 95 points or more (A+), it is a must buy.
