Jonata Proprietary Red El Desafio de Jonata 2006, 750mL (WA94-96) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Jonata Proprietary Red El Desafio de Jonata

750mL

Vintage: 2006
Region: US
Appellation: Santa Ynez Valley, Santa Barbara

WA94-96
Rated 94-96 points by Robert Parker`s Wine Advocate: `The 2006 El Desafio de Jonata, a blend of 84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Cabernet Franc, 6% Petit Verdot, and 1% Merlot, may be even better (it was scheduled to be bottled right after my visit). A beautiful black/purple color is accompanied by stunning aromas of creme de cassis, graphite, camphor, and incense. It exhibits tremendous intensity, beautiful sweet fruit, full-bodied power as well as purity, and a finish that lasts 45+ seconds. This amazing effort is the greatest Cabernet Sauvignon-based wine ever made in the Santa Ynez appellation.`This remarkable Santa Ynez estate is under the same ownership as Napa Valley`s Screaming Eagle winery. While well-known Bordeaux consultant, Michel Rolland, and Screaming Eagle`s winemaker, Andy Erickson, play important roles at Jonata, the people most responsible for the quality of the wines are owners Charles Banks, Stan Kroenke, and winemaker Matt Dees. Jonata`s debut vintage, the 2004s, were somewhat of a work in progress, but the 2005s convincingly established what compelling wines were about to emerge. The 2006s and a handful of 2007 barrel samples I tasted suggest this is one of California`s most exciting new wineries. What they are accomplishing with Bordeaux varietals is mind-boggling. I have included these cuvees since some of the blends include Rhone varietals.`--Tasting Note by Robert Parker--
