2014 Jonata "La Sangre de Jonata" Santa Ynez Valley Syrah

SKU #1334728 99 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark Unquestionably the star of the show is the 2014 La Sangre de Jonata, and it's a more finesse driven, elegant, cool climate example of the cuvee than normal. 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, it will be more approachable that most vintage of this cuvee, yet I still wouldn't touch bottles for 3-5 years. If you must drink a bottle over the coming couple of years, give it a 2-hour decant. Inner quote mark (8/2017)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Made from 99% Syrah and 1% Viognier, the medium garnet-purple colored 2014 La Sangre de Jonata is a little closed to begin, presenting notes of blackberry preserves and black cherries with hints of violets, tar and chargrill. The concentrated, medium to full-bodied palate is packed with expressive, youthful black fruit, supported by firm, rounded tannins and finishing on a peppery note. (LPB) Inner quote mark (9/2017)

93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark A big, explosive wine, the 2014 La Sangre de Jonata is going to need at least a few years to soften. Then again, that is pretty much the norm for this Syrah. The flavors are dark, intense and meaty with a huge backbone of tannin that gives the wine its distinctive energy. (AG) Inner quote mark (9/2017)
