Jada Vineyard & Winery Description

On the west side of Paso Robles, on Vineyard Drive is the hilltop winery and vineyards of Jada. The winery produces Bordeaux and Rhône blends. The vineyard was established in 1999, when Jack and Robyn Messina purchased the land with their sights set on making olive oil. They quickly decided to diversify and plant grapes and later, in 2005, created a winery.

 Virtual Tour

The old barn on the property lent itself perfectly to a gravity flow winery. The living space above the old horse stables was converted into a contemporary tasting room, and the stables below converted to become the barrel room.

The modern open air tasting room has an acid stained concrete tasting bar and a great deck to enjoy. The friendly staff will guide you through the wines paired with fine cheeses from Paso’s local cheese shop, Vivant. You can sample Jada’s Tuscan-style olive oil made from olives grown on the estate.

Jada Vineyards Wine making description

The "Jersey Girl", named for Robyn's proud roots, is Syrah harvested from the tops of the hills. Jersey Girl 2008 $40.00
100 % Estate Syrah 462 Cases Produced

The 2C block of Syrah, at 14 acres, is one of the largest blocks on the property and covers a variety of aspects and soil depths. As a result, the grapes were harvested
over five picks spanning roughly two weeks. The 08 Jersey Girl is a selection of barrels from each of these picks designed to offer up subtle nuances and add to the overall intrigue of the wine.

The grapes were hand harvested, destemmed and gravity fed to 1.5 ton and 3 ton open top fermenters. Each lot then underwent an extensive pre-fermentation cold soak. Over the next three weeks the lots were fermented separately utilizing only punch-down for cap management. Upon dryness, the lots were gently basket pressed and aged in barrel for 18 months prior to blending. The wines were then bottled unfined and unfiltered in April 2010.

Slight notes of lavender and dark cocoa are presented on the nose, while flavors
of cassis and boysenberry develop on the palate, along with a velvety smooth body.

2007 Hell's Kitchen Paso Robles ($48; 54% syrah, 25% tannat and 21% mourvedre) Inky ruby. Exotic scents of red and dark berries, black olive, minerals and violet; smells like a powerful northern Rhone wine.

2006 Passing By Paso Robles ($38; 95% cabernet sauvignon and 5% merlot) Saturated ruby. Smoky, pungent aromas of dried red berries and cherry, with notes of anise and rose adding complexity. Dusty tannins add support to the deep red- and blackcurrant flavors, which are given spine by zesty minerality. Manages to be ripe as well as nervy, and finishes with good clarity and spicy persistence.90 points

2006 Jack Of Hearts Paso Robles ($42; 45% cabernet sauvignon, 40% petit verdot and 15% merlot) Deep ruby-red. Youthfully primary dark berry and cherry skin on the nose, with complicating notes of cracked pepper and minerals. Tightly wound on entry but loosens up and gains sweetness with air to offer lush black raspberry and boysenberry flavors. Finishes with impressive clarity and a strong kick of Asian spices. This is drinking very well right now.91 points

Great Atmosphere
rockedge, OakPark
Been to this winery a couple of times, we love sitting on the terrace , tasting wines paired with different cheeses. Have not purchased any as none of the wines suited our taste buds. They have a bite to them whereas I like a smoother taste. Staff is great and would go back again.

bbarnett, Newbury Park
Moving toward all estate grapes. Talented winemaker, makes the most of the blending process. These wines tend toward the "money is no object" style of production much to the benefit of the consumer. Relatively low number of variatels made, all quite good.

The tasting room is a little small for my liking but the wine and cheese pairing and the friendly staff make up for it in spades. The wines are complex and wonderful and the way that they package the wine you purchase is LOVELY!

Eagle12, Schaumburg
Stopped in on the recommendation of a couple wineries that we stopped at prior. The sleek ultra modern winery did not disappoint. They offered 4 wines each paired with Artisan cheeses. 2 of the wines were available to purchase and 2 were only available to wine club members. My brother joined the wine club and I purchased a bottle of Hells Kitchen. The staff was friendly and answered all the questions that we asked. What a nice sleek look to their bottles and packaging in general.
