Jonata La Sangre de Jonata 2009
Critical AcclaimAll Vintages
Meaning the blood of Syrah, the 2009 Jonata Winery La Sangre de Jonata is aptly named and represents the sheer essence of Syrah. A blend of 98% Syrah and 2% co-fermented Viognier, it’s thrillingly dense and rich, with spectacularly deep, classy aromas of blackberry, charcoal, blood, lavender, and violets that literally soar from the glass. Incredibly concentrated and rich, this hits the palate with a full-bodied, dense, layered texture that partially conceals the massive underlying structure and tannin of the wine.
Jonata is the embodiment of land, soul, and people coming together for a common goal; to produce singular wines from a singular place.
Land – Jonata is a stunning 600 acre property, with 80 acres of estate vineyard on golden rolling hills in Ballard Canyon. High concentrations of Careaga sand run through the estate. A challenging landscape for cultivation and a key element to the qualities of Jonata, pushing our vines to drive deep in search of nutrients.
Soul – Timeless and diverse practices are in place to create health and community at Jonata. Polyface farming practices are implemented to create a diverse and sustainable ecosystem, utilizing a blend of sustainable practices that continue to build the health of Jonata.
People – Since 2004, a consistent team remains at the core. Winemaker Matt Dees & Vineyard manager Ruben Solorzano combine their experiences in winemaking, soil science and farming expertise to help Jonata thrive.
