JONATA 2010 CABERNET SAUVIGNON "EL DESAFIO DE JONATA" SANTA YNEZ VALLEY 750mL

WINE ADVOCATE 93 POINTS - A tweaked blend of 43% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32% Cabernet Franc, 14% Petit Verdot and 11% Malbec, the 2010 El Desafio de Jonata is the most approachable of the lineup and offers up lovely wild herbs, cured meats, underbrush and spice as well as medium to full-bodied richness and depth on the palate. It will hit maturity well before the other more Cabernet-dominated efforts, yet should still have a graceful evolution with upwards of 15 years or more of longevity. Drink now-2025. This was an incredible tasting with winemaker Matt Dees. This estate continues to produce some of the most impressive, long-lived wines in Santa Barbara. As Iíve learned from past tasting, itís 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 oneís palate. While Iíve 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 estateís 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). elieved they would struggle to produce.
