son rides a horse among olive trees and where dogs and chickens share the grounds with the Vigil family and the winery.

Tasting Notes - El Gran Enemigo SV Gualtallary shows a deep purple color with red highlights. Its aromas are intense and elegant. Cabernet Franc brings sweet spices, black pepper and light notes of eucalyptus and thyme. Malbec brings notes of ripe black fruits, blackberries and black cherries. The oak aging gives a touch of chocolate and vanilla to blend. The taste is complex, sweet impact with structured tannins, and a very long and persistent finish. This wine was made in honor of the old Pomerol style where Cabernet Franc was blended with the other Bordeaux varieties.

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."

wines from Lewis, Behren's & Hitchcock, T-Vine, and Cade.

Complex aromatic contour of dark chocolate, Maraschino cherry, fresh raspberries, and a subtle hint of cracked Pink Peppercorns. On the palate, bold notes of Black Cherry and Currants are finely balanced by subtle hints of anise and vanilla bean. The palate finishes strong with a hefty portion of silky, ripe tannin. This wine is ready to drink now, but will continue to develop through 2018.
