Winemaker Notes:

Coy and reserved at first, then ripe and musky on the nose with rosemary, mint, dark chocolate and perfumed incense. Black cherry, cassis and pine needles. Such a sensual nose. Supple dark chocolate and sweet black raspberries on the palate. Creamy and generous. Clove and pipe tobacco. Chalky and tight tannins reminiscent of cacao nibs. Reticent; showing voluptuousness then covering up. Fascinating Alma displaying the poetic side of Cabernet Franc.

96 Points - Vinous

Silky, aromatic and expressive, the 2013 El Alma de Jonata graces the palate with exquisite finesse. The Cabernet Franc notes dominate, of course, but it is the wine's exceptional balance that is most remarkable. Sweet red cherry, plum, rose petal and mint shape the silky, perfumed finish. What a striking wine this is. The 2013 is 81% Cabernet Franc, 16% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Merlot and 1% Petit Verdot.

94 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Leading off the bottled releases, the 2013 El Alma de Jonata (81% Cabernet Franc, 16% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Merlot and Petit Verdot) is still tight and closed, yet loaded with potential. Giving up notes of iron, dark chocolate, liquid smoke, lead pencil and tobacco leaf, this full-bodied, concentrated, downright serious beauty needs 4-6 years of cellaring and will keep for 10-15 years after that.

94 Points - James Suckling

Wet earth and dried fruits with hints of chalk, chocolate flakes and berries. Full body, yet balanced and refined. Very long and full of place. A beauty.
