2015 Jonata "El Alma de Jonata" Ballard Canyon Bordeaux Blend

SKU #1380716 98 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark Showing awesome aromatics, as well as an incredible depth on the palate, the 2015 El Alma de Jonata (74% Cabernet Franc, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Petit Verdot and Merlot) reveals an inky purple color as well as killer notes of blackcurrant, spring flowers, dark chocolate, bay leaf and licorice. Possessing full-bodied richness, gorgeous purity of fruit, lots of chalky tannin, and a great finish, this is easily a candidate for the finest Cabernet Franc made in America. It needs 4-5 years of cellaring and will keep for two decades. 98+ Inner quote mark (7/2018)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Composed of 74% Cabernet Franc, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Petit Verdot and 2% Merlot, the 2015 El Alma de Jonata gives a deep garnet-purple color and vibrantly scented nose of red currants, black cherries and rose hip tea with hints of tobacco, pencil shavings and underbrush. Medium to full-bodied, the rich, decadent fruit is nicely framed by firm, grainy tannins plus plenty of freshness, finishing long and perfumed. (LPB) Inner quote mark (9/2017)

94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2015 El Alma de Jonata is going to need at least a few years to come into its own, as the tannins are quite prominent. The 2015, with its strong Cabernet Franc imprint, is concentrated, layered and full of promise. I expected the Alma to be a bit more expressive given the natural richness of the year, but its reticence is likely a good thing for the future, especially as the Franc character starts to open up with cellaring. (AG) 94+ Inner quote mark (9/2018)
