Kirk Venge, one of Napa Valley’s most in-demand young winemaking stars, fashioned this vibrant Sauvignon Blanc.
What You Need To Know
When Trent and Kimberly Jackson’s father retired to an estate in northern Napa in 1996, he probably didn’t predict that the move would change his children’s lives. But not long after, Trent enlisted winemaker Kirk Venge to create a tiny hobby wine for the family from the site’s Cabernet vineyard. A few years later, Kimberly quit her technology job to plunge the family into the wine business for real. Venge still produces an estate-grown Cabernet under the Jax name, but now has free rein to buy fruit for a label christened Y3, after the brand symbol used on the Jacksons’ grandparents’ cattle ranch. Venge sources grapes for the Y3 Sauvignon from a site in Napa’s Yountville district. He picked the fruit early and fermented it mostly in tanks to retain its bright, juicy acidity.
