2015 Jonata "La Sangre de Jonata" Santa Ynez Valley Syrah

SKU #1380715 100 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark Even better than the crazy-good 2007, the 2015 La Sangre de Jonata is sheer perfection in a glass and up with the finest Syrahs ever made in California! Checking in as a blend of 97% Syrah and 3% Viognier, aged in barrel, its saturated purple color is followed by out of this world aromatics black raspberries, smoked earth, graphite, game, violets and freshly crushed rock-like minerality. Possessing huge concentration, building tannin, and yet a seamless, ethereally pure texture, it needs 2-4 years of bottle age to become approachable. It is unquestionably the finest vintage for this cuvée today and hats off to the team at Jonata for this beauty! Inner quote mark (7/2018)

96 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The flagship 2015 La Sangre de Jonata (Syrah) is endowed with tremendous aromatic intensity and explosive energy. A rush of red cherry, pomegranate and blood orange builds as the 2015 fills out its layers of texture in the glass. Bright floral notes appear to give the wine lift, energy and soaring intensity. The interplay of richness and freshness makes for a striking, captivating version of La Sangre. (AG) Inner quote mark (9/2018)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Composed of 97% Syrah and 3% Viognier, the 2015 La Sangre de Jonata has a medium garnet-purple color and vibrantly scented nose of red and black cherries, violets, underbrush and Indian spices with a yeasty/savory/meaty undercurrent. Full-bodied, rich, powerful and wonderfully spicy in the mouth, the opulent fruit is well-framed by firm, rounded tannins and it finishes long and peppery. (LPB) 95+ Inner quote mark (9/2017)

94 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Plump and potent, yet polished, with vivid smoky game and blueberry aromas that lead to deeply layered boysenberry, bittersweet chocolate and orange zest flavors that build richness toward fine tannins. Better than previously reviewed. (TF, Web Only-2019) Inner quote mark

K&L Notes

"We’ve never seen a Sangre like the ’15. Tough to put in to words. Unmatched complexity with ripe blackberry, charred tri-tip and green peppercorn. Luxurious texture. Perfumed, exotic and supple. Creosote, tar, violets and truffle. Such is the power and density of this wine that the formidable tannins on the finish appear merely as soft, dusty and balanced. Everything on a higher level and nothing out of place. Similar only to the 2007 Sangre in which both wines were seamless and gorgeous from the moment the grapes were harvested to the moment we put them in bottle. Very special and rarified air." Matt Dees, Winemaker 97% Syrah, 3% Viognier. 405 Cases Produced
