JONATA 2009 CABERNET SAUVIGNON "EL DESAFIO DE JONATA" SANTA YNEZ VALLEY 750mL

WINE ADVOCATE 97 POINTS - “Up there with the 2007 and shockingly good, the 2009 El Desafio de Jonata has awesome notes of smoke, cigar, chocolate, spice and dark fruit literally soaring from the glass. Massive and powerful, with no hard edges and serious tannin, this rocking Cabernet Sauvignon needs another 3-4 years of bottle age and will live well past its 20th birthday. Drink 2016-2029.” - Yeah, yeah…but we had no problem drinking it now!

No joke: this wine will rival Cabernet Sauvignon from the best regions in the world, be it Napa Valley, Bordeaux or Sonoma. A French consultant was hired to tell Jonata what grapes to plant on the property and exactly where to plant them. After days spent scouring the 600-acre property, Jonata was told that in lieu of planting Bordeaux grapes, they should instead plant asparagus. This wine has always represented Jonata’s defiance (“El Desafio!”), their uprising to that challenge. In 2009 Jonata produced their loudest rebellion to date, an inky wine that’s the polar opposite of the weedy, lean wines that this consultant believed they would struggle to produce.
