JONATA 2012 PROPRIETARY RED "TODOS" SANTA BARBARA COUNTY 750mL

Owned by Stanly Kroenke, the same gentleman that owns Screaming Eagle, Jonata has catapulted itself to the forefront of Santa Barbara County winemaking! Their vineyards are sustainably farmed, the wines routinely received high scores from the critics, and it was their “Todos” blend that really struck a chord with us this year! “Todos” translates to everything, and no, Jonata didn’t just blend every single barrel of the leftovers. There were fantastic barrels of Cabernet, Syrah, Merlot, etc., so winemaker Matt Dees did blending trials with specific quantities of each varietal, and for the past few years, Todos has been an incredible wine for the money! It has earned 93 points from Wine Advocate and is a great way for consumers to sample the “house style” at a fraction of the price of the top bottlings.

ROBERT PARKER'S WINE ADVOCATE 93 POINTS - A great wine, the 2012 Todos Proprietary Red Wine offers terrific notes of black and red raspberry fruits, toasted bread and spice. As it sat in the glass, more classic Syrah olive, bacon and a touch of violet all developed. Medium to full-bodied, juicy, mouthfilling and loaded with sweet fruit, it doesn't skimp on structure and will have at least a decade of longevity. Think of this as a mini-La Sangre. The blend here is 75% Syrah with 7% each of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, and the balance a mix of varieties. Both the 2012s and 2013s from Jonata are superb, and this team excelled with both the Bordeaux and Rhone varieties. I think the 2013s have an extra layer of concentration and depth, with the Fenix being one of the greatest Merlots I have tasted from the region. It is from barrel, so nothing's set in stone, but this is a killer wine. The Cabernet Franc El Alma de Jonata and El Desafio aren’t far behind and are incredibly concentrated and rich. I suspect all of these will have two decades or more of longevity. As to the Syrahs, the La Sangre tastes like the essence of the variety, but is often so tannic in its youth it is almost undrinkable. The Todos is becoming more and more Syrah dominated and certainly is not far behind in terms of quality and is much (well, a little) more approachable on release. In short, you can’t go wrong at this estate and these are brilliant wines that check in near the top of the Santa Barbara hierarchy. Hat's off to winemaker Matt Dees and the rest of the team.



ANTONIO GALLONI 93 POINTS - The 2012 Todos, Jonata's Syrah-based blend, is once again delicious. A touch of appassimento gives the 2012 an extra kick of flavor and texture intensity. Sweet cherry, raspberry jam, spice, mint and licorice notes abound in this racy, bold red. Todos is Jonata's least expensive red wine, but it competes quite favorable with the higher-end bottlings. The 2012 was aged mostly in larger-format French oak barrels, with 40% new wood.
