Winemaker Notes

Perfumed and intoxicating nose of bright red fruit with earth-driven herbal hints, lavender and a lifted note of new leather. The Alma we’ve always aspired to produce. A wine of substance, complexity and charm. Wonderful interplay between sweet red fruit, dark herbal notes and chalky and lingering tannins. Fascinating and layered. A sincere and intense expression of cabernet franc.

Blend: 88% Cabernet Franc, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Petit Verdot

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JD 95
Jeb Dunnuck

The Cabernet Franc dominated cuvée, the 2014 El Alma de Jonata (88% Cabernet Franc, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Petit Verdot) sports a deep ruby color as well as a beautiful perfume of spring flowers, tobacco leaf, dark fruits and violets. Medium to full-bodied, elegant and layered, it doesn't have the density or depth of a top vintage, yet is beautifully balanced and elegant, with fine tannin, it's going age nicely on its balance.

RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Blended of 88% Cabernet Franc, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Petit Verdot, the deep garnet-purple colored 2014 El Alma de Jonata gives up notions of black plums, cassis and black cherries with suggestions of violets, cigar box, dusty soil and bay leaves. Medium-bodied, firm, taut and muscular in the mouth, it has ripe grainy tannins and plenty of coiled expression ready to spring with another two to three years in bottle.

Jonata Winery Image
Jonata is 600 acres of gorgeous, golden hills: eighty of which were meticulously selected based on their unique microclimates and soild profiles, then divided into more than fifty blocks and sub-blocks - each matched with different rootstocks, clones and planting densities - to provide winemaker, Matt Dees, with the broadest palette from which to blend the distinctive wines of Jonata.

Ranging from cool and foggy in the west to warm and dry in the east, the Santa Ynez Valley is a climatically diverse growing area. The most expansive AVA within the larger Santa Barbara County region, Santa Ynez is also home to a wide variety of soil types and geographical features. The appellation is further divided into four distinct sub-AVAs—Sta. Rita Hills, Ballard Canyon, Los Olivos District and Happy Canyon—each with its own defining characteristics.

A wide selection of grapes is planted here—more than sixty different varieties, and counting. Chardonnay and Pinot Noir dominate in the chilly west, while Zinfandel, Rhône blends, and Bordeaux blends rule the arid east. Syrah is successful at both ends of the valley, with a lean and peppery, Old-World sensibility closer to the coast and lush berry fruit further inland.

The subtler and more delicate of the Cabernets, Cabernet Franc is a proud parent of Cabernet Sauvignon. While both are important grapes in modern day, high quality Bordeaux, Cabernet Franc also produces outstanding single varietal wines across the wine-producing world. Sommelier Secret—One of California's best-kept secrets is the Happy Canyon appellation of Santa Barbara. Here Cabernet Franc shines as a single varietal wine or in blends, expressing sumptuous fruit, savory aromas and polished tannins.
