Jonata Winery la Sangre de Jonata 2005
"The 100% Syrah offering, the 2005 La Sangre de Jonata, exhibits an inky/blue/purple hue along with a stunningly pure nose of melted licorice, meat juices, blackberries, pepper, and a hint of balsamic. It is a wine of extraordinary density, richness, high tannin, beautiful purity, laser-like acidity, and superb texture as well as length. This remarkable Syrah is both powerful and elegant. Give it several more years of bottle age, and consume it over the following 10-15 years...94" WA 06/08
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.
