Jonata 2011 El Alma de Jonata

96 Points by Robert Parker:

A wet winter, a rare spring frost episode and windy conditions at set formed an ominous trio for
the beginning of the 2011 harvest. The resulting crop was greatly reduced. The average tonnage
per acre on the Bordeaux grapes was well below 2 tons per acre, at 1.78. For their tight vine density,
that yield is truly paltry. Syrah and sangiovese fared better, but both were down about 20%
from the previous vintages. 750 ML

Description

Details

Heady and colorful nose of red fruit, black Kalamata olive, fresh green herbs and clean, brown earth. It is an experience just smelling this blend. Seductive stuff. A wine of balance and intrigue. Dark bittersweet chocolate, dried leaves, sweet tobacco, black tea and Luxardo cherries. Stays fresh and refined across the palate and finishes with a note of minty coolness and firm yet fine tannin. Cooler climate cabernet franc at its complete and complex best.
