The Blood of Jonata" is the property's top Syrah, loaded with exotic spices and provençal herbs. Antonio Galloni flipped, rating this higher than nearly every other Syrah in 2013: "The 2013 La Sangre de Jonata is magnificent. Usually a much darker wine, in 2013 the Sangre is noticeably bright, focused and also light on its feet, with plenty of vibrant red cherry flavors pushed forward. The interplay of rich fruit and livelier notes from the 10% whole cluster and a touch of Viognier is compelling. All things considered, the 2013 is remarkably refined for such an intense wine." - Vinous Only 542 cases of this uniquely Californian Syrah were produced - act quickly to secure your share. "

Details

That low rumbling sound you hear is Jonata’s (hoe-na-ta) rocket engines warming up for takeoff. Established as a cousin winery to Napa’s acclaimed Screaming Eagle, their first commercial vintage in 2004 caused a stir among mailing list cognoscenti. Then the momentum began to build in the trade. And then Robert Parker called them “one of California’s most exciting new wineries” in a review, and the floodgates blasted open with collectors and connoisseurs scrambling to find their wares. Folks, we’re thrilled to tell you where you can get them! As Robert Parker has remarked, “What they are accomplishing with Bordeaux varietals is mind-boggling.” We can’t really make it any easier for you…
