More lively and pure, with brighter acidity than the 2010, the 2011 La Sangre de Jonata gives up plenty of violets, toast, licorice, chocolate and blackberry fruit as well as a full-bodied, supple and gorgeously focused and pure feel in the mouth. More approachable than the 2010, and scoring high on drinkability, this beauty will benefit from another year or thee and drink nicely through 2026. Drink 2015-2026. (JD)
Bright purple. Expansive, exotic bouquet of black raspberry, potpourri, bacon fat, smoky minerals and incense; smells like a high-class Cote-Rotie. Fat and velvety on entry, then more taut in the mid-palate, showing superb energy and focus to its deep, sweet flavors of red and dark berries and violet pastille. Completely stains the palate but gives no impression of excess weight. A floral note lingers on the long, sappy finish, which betrays only a hint of dusty tannins. (JR)
A potent, delicious effort, with a wide range of flavors. Dark and dense, with aromas of blackberry, rhubarb, pepper, tar, tobacco leaf and cedar. Eases up a bit, showing a suppleness midpalate on. Ends with a mix of anise and licorice notes. Drink now through 2028.
