Simply a masterpiece!
"Unquestionably the star of the show." Jeb Dunnuck
This wine "wows with its silky fruit and seductive structure." Matt Dees
With the same owners as Screaming Eagle, the same commitment to quality, and with only 490 six packs produced, the 2014 Jonata La Sangre is one of the most collectible domestic Syrahs.
It is a "finesse driven, elegant, cool climate example of the cuvée.... Reminding me of an Hermitage from Bessards, it offers gorgeous notes of blackberries, cassis, leather, scorched earth and pepper. Possessing full-bodied richness, firm, polished tannin and a focused finish... If you must drink a bottle over the coming couple of years, give it a 2-hour decant." Jeb Dunnuck
The evolution of the Jonata vineyards in the last decade cannot be overlooked. For a grape that can only thrive in ideal conditions, this wine has intoxicating waves of dark fruit, dried sage and earth. It is velvety with gorgeously saturated fruit that rivals the likes of Hermitage's finest. It is world-class!
Like "a rose about to bloom," you can certainly enjoy this wine now, but a few years in the bottle will reward your patience.
If you must enjoy now - which we don't blame you - give it ample time to breath before assured enjoyment.
