Jonata Winery la Sangre de Jonata 2006
Exotic nose that floats gracefully between powerful black cherry, soy-like gamey notes and perfumed and lifted floral incense. The intensity of the color and the complexity of the aromatic profile give a hint to the power within this brooding wine. Bouquet of black pepper, bacon fat and black truffles. Spice notes pick up on the palate amidst a wave of dense black raspberry and olive tapenade flavors. Subtle and sweet, yet persistent tannins bring a level of added intensity to this powerful, balanced and concentrated expression of Jonata syrah.
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.
