The 2005 El Alma de Jonata is a blend of 95% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon. One of the greatest Cabernet Francs to emerge from California, it boasts gorgeous notes of bay leaf interwoven with blueberries, black currants, licorice, flowers, and subtle smoke. A wine of exquisite precision, outstanding richness, astonishing elegance as well as finesse, this is a brilliant achievement that must be tasted to be believed. As the wine sits in the glass, a notion of lead pencil shavings (graphite) also emerges. Drink this beauty over the next decade. (RP)
Deep ruby. Strikingly pure and exotically perfumed, with energetic cherry, cassis, tobacco and rose aromas. Dense and chewy but bright, offering wonderfully lucid dark fruit flavors and vivid minerality. Suave licorice and bitter cherry flavors stain the palate and carry through a long, pliant finish. Impressively complex cabernet franc, with enough sweetness for immediate gratification but the concentration and balance to repay cellaring. (JR)
