  • Salinas, CA (1888PressRelease) August 23, 2015 - Author Patrice Vecchione's new book Step into Nature: Nurturing Imagination and Spirit in Everyday Life (Simon & Schuster/Beyond Words) illuminates the ways in which time in nature can increase and enhance memory and infuse imagination.

    About Jarman Wines
    Jarman's terroir (a French word that speaks to a wine's place of origin, its subtle nuances of traceable character, flavor, lineage and integrity) refers to a special place in Carmel Valley-and also to a special woman who inspired a family to bottle the essence of a mother's spirit. The Jarman label will reflect quality, with only the best local grapes used during an artisanal, small-batch winemaking process. Jarman wine uses only 100 percent estate-grown, organic and certified-sustainable grapes. Aged in French oak barrels, Jarman's vintages are held in limited supply, and not available anywhere outside their tasting room.

    The two varietals include:
    · The 2013 Jarman Pinot Noir takes on nuances of warm blueberry pie, cloves and cinnamon that mingle in the nose with oak notes from 10 months in the barrel. The mouth-feel is plump and juicy with overtones of cassis and blackberries.

    · The 2014 Jarman Chardonnay features floral notes reminiscent of walking by a parfumerie in France - subtle and pleasant with a hint of earthiness. When serving this wine lightly chilled, rich notes of underripe berries and raw honey will waltz across your palate.

    To further honor their mother's memory, the family has opened a special tasting room in Carmel Valley Village (open noon to 5 p.m., Thurs.-Sun.; or by appointment) next to Will's Fargo Steakhouse + Bar, the restaurant they purchased in 2014. The tastings will feature full-fledged experiences, including tours and wine education, and each will include a food element that complements the wine. The new Jarman tasting room will provide visitors with three unique experiences: Cru Tasting, Premier Cru Experience and the Grand Cru Experience.
