The 2011 Arietta Red Wine H Block Hudson Vineyards, Arietta's "eldest child" and best known red wine, returns to the fold after a year-long sabbatical. Beginning with the 2011 vintage, Read More...
Merlot from the adjacent Hudson I Block joins the Cabernet Franc from the celebrated H Block on the Hudson Ranch on the Napa side of Carneros, and provides an especially juicy core to the wine. This year's blend is 54% Merlot and 46% Cabernet Franc.

ANTONIO GALLONI 91 POINTS - "Proprietor Fritz Hatton and winemaker Andy Erickson have done a fabulous job with these wines, the 2011 reds in particular. Sweet red berries, tobacco, mint, licorice and a host of savory notes are woven throughout the 2011 H Block Hudson Vineyards, a Cabernet Franc/Merlot blend. The 2011 is soft and inviting, with a focus on nuance rather than size. My impression is that the 2011 is built for near-term drinking, but like all of Arietta's reds in this challenging vintage, the H Block stands out for its sense of balance."

He consults with multiple clients including Le Macchiole, Tua Rita and Fattoria Le Pupille. Duemani is his personal property and winemaking follows his strict biodynamic philosophy.Azienda Agricola Duemani is the ownership property of superstar winemaker Luca d’Attoma (formerly of Tua Rita, and currently at Le Macchiole, pictured above). This winery is the perfect example of what happens when a world-class enologist finally has the chance to buy his own property. Starting completely from scratch, Luca leveled these rolling hillsides in Riparbella, just next to Bolgheri, and planted his fields mainly with his first love: Cabernet Franc. The passion Luca puts into the wines is obvious, as the project has been entirely organic/ biodynamic from the first day. With no neighboring properties, his vineyards are totally isolated from conventional farming. His vineyard density is unusually high, resulting in fruit of exceptional quality The estate is certified biodynamic by Demeter (http://www.demeter.net). As proponents of the principles of biodynamic farming, the cultivation and care of the vineyard’s soil is of the utmost importance to Luca and Elena. They employ various practices throughout the year to stimulate soil vitality and health which in turn provides beneficial nutrients and oxygen to the vines.

Lot # 36 is composed of mountain grown Cabernet Franc from Pirque in the Alto Maipo Valley. It was fermented naturally, caps were punched down by hand and pressing was strictly manual.

ROBERT PARKER'S WINE ADVOCATE 96 POINTS - "This was an incredible tasting with winemaker Matt Dees. This estate continues to produce some of the Read More...
most impressive, long-lived wines in Santa Barbara. As I’ve learned from past tasting, it’s always best to schedule this appointment at the end of the day as these effort have no shortage of tannin and can wreak havoc on one’s palate. While I’ve routinely tasted the La Sangre de Jonata for a number of years now, it was great to be able to go back through past vintages of this estate’s other wines. In addition to these efforts bottled under the Jonata label, I was also able to taste their The Hilt and The Pairing releases, both of which are also reviewed in this report (and highly recommended).

"While there was no El Almas produced in 2010 due to late rains, the 2011 El Alma de Jonata is beautiful. Most similar to the 2008, with pure, pretty notes of wild herbs, dark chocolate, tobacco, crushed flowers and currants, it flows onto the palate with beautiful freshness and purity, big richness and a great finish. Give it another couple of years and enjoy it through 2026. Drink 2015-2026."

This Cabernet Franc wine comes from an exceptional little vineyard planted in 1976 next to La Jota's century-old stone winery on Howell Mountain. Grafted onto resistant St. George rootstock, Read More...
it escaped the ravages of phylloxera to become one of the oldest Cabernet Franc vineyards in Napa County. The old vines self-regulate so there's no need to thin crop, pull leaves, or in any other way adjust the grape-to-canopy ratio. Year after year, the grapes are intensely flavored and beautifully balanced. Not many wineries produce Cabernet Franc and this wine definitely captures the essence of La Jota terroir.

Ripe strawberry and rose petal aromatics carry through on the palate with blueberry, green tea, white pepper, vanilla and a minerality that continues on the lengthy finish.

What a difference a year makes! 2012 was a picture perfect growing season, ending with the harvest of Sugarloaf Mountain Vineyard in early October.

The aromas are expressive of violet, dark chocolate and cherry; the varietal purity of the flavors on the palate are expansive and long lasting. This wine, elegant and balanced, will stand the test of time.

s finest Cabernet Franc. The complexity is mesmerizing, as the wine playfully offers aromas of black fruit, salvia, rosemary, chocolate and spice in quick succession. It still tastes tight and nervous, so give it the time required to soften. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2030. Monica Larner."

hurt that I also love Chenin Blanc. Joe Pithon and Joe Paille represent what I love in wine. The passion for their craft and their love for the land (all organic) that gives them their livelihood shows in every bottle they produce. Every time I open a bottle of Pithon-Paillé it takes me back to their dinner table, laughing, eating and enjoying the company of some truly special people. Take home a bottle or two and make your own memories with the ones who are truly special to you.

Winemaker's Note - On the nose, this pale gold wine has an autumnal apple character, sweet and relaxed, and yet also quite vibrant and pure in style. At the edge there is a lifted bright, green-apple-skin note. But on the palate it is certainly more perfumed and fleshy than green, showing a sweet flavour reminiscent of pink-fleshed apples. This comes with a lovely substance. Quite solid and yet bright, giving the wine a rather bold feel at times. Also a touch grippy, although very approachable, with its solid apple-flesh character. Delicious freshness and brightness here.
