History
As many of you know, when we started making our own wines in 1987, we named the tiny, 200 case operation after our daughter, Elyse. Not wanting to leave our son, Jake, out of loop, we eventually named our Rhone blend after him. It wasn't enough. Jake asked us, "When do I get my own label without her name on it?" In 1998, we began a new label named after Jake: Jacob Franklin. These wines are a new departure for us. With Elyse wines, we've always adhered to the philosophy that wine is not for the elite, and that wine consumers deserve to obtain high quality, well-crafted, drinkable wines at reasonable prices. We still believe that and we always will, but we've also been fortunate enough to gain access to some extremely limited, incredible Petite Sirah fruit from highly desirable vineyards. This fruit makes richly focused, highly extracted, brawny, yet layered wines with fantastic aging potential. But the fruit is hard to come by and it is very low in yield. Consequently, the wines are very limited and they sell out quickly. We've also included on the Jacob Franklin label Cabernet Sauvignon from our own estate vineyard near Yountville, which we feel mirrors the complexity of our Jacob Franklin Petite Sirah's. We make so little that these wines are usually only available at the winery, so we're pleased to offer them here on our website as well.
