Winemaker Notes

Dark and brooding with the essence of cassis. Tight and coiled as the winemaker would hope at this “baby” stage. Great expansion of fruit on the attack shows its potential. Sweet and substantial tannins build early and help define this young wine. An absolutely refined and classic Desafio.

Blend: 79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Merlot, 4% Petit Verdot, 4% Cabernet Franc

Critical Acclaim

JD 94
Jeb Dunnuck
A Cabernet Sauvignon dominated blend that includes 13% Merlot and 4% each of Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc, the 2014 El Desafio de Jonata gives up lots of blackcurrant, cedar, lend pencil and licorice aromas and flavors, medium to full-bodied richness, a light, elegant texture and notable, yet ripe tannin. It will merit an even higher score if it gains weight in bottle.
RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Matt Dees observed that the 2014 El Desafio de Jonata has really begun to open up from its rather surly state six months ago, and he opened a bottle to prove his point. While the wine is certainly still quite tightly coiled, it unfurls in the glass with an attractively complex bouquet of cassis, smoky herbs, charcoal, burning embers and espresso roast, its new oak already nicely integrated. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, with a rich chassis of structuring tannins, nice concentration and depth and a crunchy core of fruit underpinned by succulent acids. I'd be inclined to wait another year or two and then drink this over the following 6 years.

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.
