2012 Jonata Winery La Sangre de Jonata  (Ballard Canyon) 96

Really sexy stuff here. The wine is rich, full bodied, concentrated and lushly textured, with a fresh, sweet, ripe, peppery, black cherry and black raspberry presence. If this is this tasty at this young age, it is only going to get better with a few years of bottle aging. This Northern Rhone styled wine was made from a blend of 97% Syrah and 3% Viognier. 96 Points

Forward, spicy and round in texture, this easy drinking wine offers floral, black cherry and licorice notes. This blend of 43% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32% Cabernet Franc, 14% Petit Verdot and 11% Malbec is already drinking well. 92 Points
