Jonata Proprietary Red El Desafio de Jonata 2004, 750mL (WA91) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Jonata Proprietary Red El Desafio de Jonata

750mL

Vintage: 2004
Region: US
Appellation: Santa Ynez Valley, Santa Barbara

WA91
Rated 91 points by Robert Parker`s Wine Advocate: `A blend of 92% Cabernet Sauvignon and 8% Merlot, the 2004 El Desafio de Jonata`s dark ruby/purple hue is followed by aromas of mocha, creme de cassis, pain grille, and a touch of espresso, superb fruit on the attack, a deep, full-bodied mouthfeel, good underlying acidity, and sweet, seamlessly integrated tannin. It should age easily for 10-15 years. It appears 2006 has produced slightly lighter, but high-class wines without the weight and power of the 2005s. The Syrah, Sauvignon Blanc, and Cabernet Franc are especially noteworthy. The only wine that did not excite me was a non-vintage blend of 81% sweet botrytised Semillon and 19% Sauvignon Blanc. A combination of 2004, 2005, and 2006, the La Miel de Jonata was decidedly monolithic and one-dimensional compared to the other brilliant wines from this spectacular new producer in the Santa Ynez Valley. Fasten your seatbelts as these wines will give purchasers a serious ride for their money! Tel. (805) 564-8581` -- Robert Parker in the Wine Advocate
