Jonata Todos Red, Santa Ynez Valley, USA 2013

Under the same ownership as one of America’s most famous fine wines, Screaming Eagle, Jonata is a very special winery with a reputation for crafting fantastic wines - so much so that winemaker Matt Dees actually turned down an opportunity to move to Screaming Eagle in order to stay on and make Jonata a key Californian producer. Jonata’s wines are produced in small quantities, only 2,400 cases produced in 2013, which makes it very difficult to find.

AWARDS AND REVIEWS

94 points, Jeb Dunnuck, Robert Parker The Wine Advocate
“Lastly, the entry-level 2013 Todos Proprietary Red Wine is a smokin’ wine that’s made from 78% Syrah, 15% Sangiovese, 2% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Viognier, 1% Cabernet Franc, 1% Petit Verdot and 1% Merlot. Full-bodied, supple, elegant and concentrated, with impeccable balance, it offers lots of purple fruit characteristics, spice, dried flowers and underbrush aromas and flavors. It’s one of the more approachable wines in the lineup, yet it will evolve for a decade or more on its purity and balance.”
