Fodor's Review

It takes a Polaris all-terrain vehicle to tour the vineyards at this family-owned winery whose grapes grow on hillsides that slope as much as 55 degrees. The rocky, volcanic soils of this former cattle ranch yield intensely flavored berries that winemaker Nicholas Bleecher, the son of the founders, transforms in consultation with blending specialist Michel Rolland into the flagship Jericho Canyon Cabernet Sauvignon and other wines. The nuances of sustainable farming in this challenging environment are among the topics covered on the Polaris tour, which also takes in the caves. All tours (there's one on foot as well), by appointment only, conclude with a tasting that begins with Sauvignon Blanc or rosé and includes the current flagship Cabernet and an older vintage.
