Founded in 2008, “Y by Yoshiki” is the collaboration of Japanese artist Yoshiki Hayashi and Napa Valley winemaker and 4th generation vintner, Rob Mondavi Jr. The wines are sourced from premium vineyards across California and express the artistry, quality and creativity of this unique partnership.
The Growing Season
A welcome end to four years of drought brought with it a consistent and healthy bud break for the 2017 vintage in mid-March. Light rains throughout April kept away any risk of frost before the warmth of May brought the vineyards to life. Ample water from a wet winter complemented a sun-filled spring with no major heat spikes, resulting in vigorous vine growth and canopy development to protect optimal bloom and fruit set. Th e heat of summer also benefitted from the recharged aquifers, acting as a buffer to maintain healthy soil moisture levels through a series of hot days. The 2017 harvest began in August under optimal conditions providing abundant, well-balanced fruit with tremendous character.
After the grapes were hand-harvested, de-stemmed and crushed, the juice was fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. Extended post-fermentation maceration harmoniously married flavors and tannins, giving this Cabernet Sauvignon its lovely, seamless texture. Malolactic fermentation, combined with 12 months oak aging (45% new French oak).
Y by Yoshiki wine is created in collaboration with Rob Mondavi Jr., 4th generation Napa Valley winemaker and grandson of Robert Mondavi.
As a wine lover and California resident, Yoshiki has truly respected the Mondavi family and their long commitment to producing world class wines for many generations. From this respect, the “Y by Yoshiki” collaboration was born.
In February 2009, Yoshiki met with Michael Mondavi and his son, Rob Mondavi Jr. They invited Yoshiki to their Napa Valley home to have dinner and to discuss their new collaboration wine project. They tasted many wines together that evening in order to get a sense of the wines that Yoshiki loves and enjoys. The next day, Yoshiki and winemaker Rob Mondavi Jr. visited the Michael Mondavi Family Estate where they tasted and blended many different wines from the different barrels of Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon in order to blend the perfect wines for Yoshiki. The first two wines of their new collaboration, -- Y by Yoshiki California Chardonnay 2008 and the Y by Yoshiki California Cabernet Sauvignon were released in Autumn 2009 exclusively in Japan.
In the fall of 2016, Yoshiki released his "Napa series" of wines -- the Y by Yoshiki Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2011 and Y by Yoshiki Napa Valley Chardonnay 2012. The grapes for these luxury wines were sourced exclusively from selected vineyards in the Napa Valley. The reputation for these wines continued to grow and after several Yoshiki television appearances featuring the wines, Y by Yoshiki Napa wines became instantly famous and quickly sold out. Since then, Y by Yoshiki wines have become more and more difficult to obtain.
Yoshiki decided to create a new blend of “smart casual wine” so that the average consumers could enjoy his California wines. Yoshiki and Rob went back to work and in July 2018, they released their "California series" of wines -- Y by Yoshiki California Chardonnay 2017 and Y by Yoshiki California Cabernet Sauvignon 2016 were released but within 6 months, the wines were sold out.
Later, at the end of 2018, in celebration of his 10 year partnership with Rob Mondavi Jr., Yoshiki released his "masterpiece", the 10th Anniversary Special Edition Y by Yoshiki Oakville Napa Valley 2016.
This year, in the summer of 2019, Yoshiki launched the newest releases of his "California series", the Y by Yoshiki "Encore" California Chardonnay 2017 and the Y by Yoshiki California Cabernet Sauvignon 2017.
