Vineyard Notes: When looking at a GPS map of the vineyard, it literally looks like a leg of ham or what the Bokisch family lineage would call "jamon," hence the name El Jamon Vineyard.

Winemaking Notes: The grapes are completely destemmed. Fermentation occurs with punch downs in ¾ ton bins. The wine ages sur lie for 8 months in neutral French oak barrels.

Tasting Notes: Big, booming nose of cassis, camphor, tea, wild strawberry pie, and red roses. Background notes of blackberry, white pepper, jasmine and garrigue. Wonderfully ripe, medium-bodied flavors of cassis, blackberry and tobacco. Long finish of boysenberry pie, baker’s chocolate and fine tannins, all framed with a bit of acidity.

Artwork by John Duckworth : "[This picture is of a] Little known public access to the Stono River that is an all-time favorite of mine for watching the sunrise. Hidden at the end of Burden Creek Road, a dirt road lined with a beautiful live oak canopy, this pot never ceases to inspire. As I walk into the water in my hip-waders, it feels like a baptism every time. Incredible way to start the day."
