The genesis of elizabethjohn, or ‘EJ’, began in the spring of 2005 with a modest two barrels of estate cabernet sauvignon and a vision for the next generation. Over time this pursuit evolved into our avant garde expression of terroir, fruit, and substance.
elizabethjohn wine is our joint endeavor as siblings and the next generation of our family’s Spring Mountain winery. We look forward to bringing you extremely limited lots, typically between one to eight barrels, of handcrafted wines sourced from our family vineyard, as well as our favorite vineyards across the Napa Valley.
We are so excited to bring our elizabethjohn wine to you- it is meant to be shared with great friends, over a lively conversation and a wonderful meal. We hope you enjoy it as much as we have enjoyed bringing it to you!

Current Release: 2010 elizabethjohn cabernet sauvignon ‘old world blend’ Our expression of the old world displays a subtle bouquet of fresh truffle and spring flowers, lifted by musky white pepper and mineral nuances. the wine is well defined and focused, with remarkable texture. currants and red raspberry add considerable complexity, followed by a long finish of youthful tannins that require patience to fully evolve. drink now to 2040; most expressive with 1-2 hours decanting (three barrels produced)
