Jonata Merlot "Fenix" 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

"There are roughly 200 cases of the sensational 2012 Fenix. A blend of 69% Merlot, 22% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Cabernet Franc and the balance Petit Verdot, it reveals a Bordeaux-like perfume of black cherries, plums, tobacco leaf, leather and damp soil. Full-bodied, supple and more elegant than powerful, it still has terrific density and length on the palate, with ample sweet tannin. I'd happily drink it today, but savvy readers would ideally give it 2-4 years of bottle age and drink bottles through 2032." *-Wine Advocate*

Jonata:
JONATA is 600 acres of gorgeous, golden mills; eighty of which were meticulously selected based on their unique microclimates and soil profiles, then divided into more than fifty blocks and sub-blocks - each matched with different rootstock. Clones and planting densities - to provide winemaker Matt Dees with the broadest palette from which to blend the distinctive wines of JONATA.
