ANTONIO GALLONO 96 POINTS - "The 2018s from Jonata are positively stellar. Like pretty much most estates, Jonata benefitted from a long, growing season with mostly benign conditions, although winemaker Matt Dees reported a bit more shatter and smaller berries in the Cabernet Sauvignon than normal. Over the last few years, the Jonata wines have become increasingly refined and nuanced. That is especially evident in 2018, a year that naturally favors freshness and vibrancy."

"The 2018 Fenix is a wine of pure and total sensuality. Lifted aromatics, pliant, expansive fruit and silky tannins give the 2018 so much sheer appeal. Plum, chocolate, licorice, spice and menthol are front and center. Fenix is a terrific example of the Jonata house style today. The wines are rich and intense, but without the excess weight of the early vintages."

JEB DUNNUCK 95-97 POINTS - "Two thirds Merlot and the rest Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, and Cabernet Franc, the 2018 Fenix has classic Merlot notes of ripe black cherries and blackcurrants, with lots of chocolate, cedar, and spice, full-bodied, richness, beautiful purity, and a great finish."
