K&L Notes

Made from the vineyard blocks that are either too young or don't fit into the vintage style of the highly acclaimed Jonata wines. The 2014 red blend is of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc, and 10%, Petit Verdot. Aged in French oak, 55% new and 45% neutral, for 22 months. Coopers include Taransaud, Sylvain, Bel Air and Dejarnac. Bottled unfined and unfiltered

    Matt Dees, also the winemaker for the Hilt and Jonata wines, runs the show for the Paring label. Fruit that doesn't make into his other two labels goes into the paring. Most of time it is the same so you end up with very similar wine that's a fraction of the cost. This Santa Ynez blend is without question one of the best value under 25$ wines that we have. The 2014 opens up with a beautiful bouquet of green pepper, earthy spices and leather. Long finish, good acid, good times. Buy two because the first will be consumed quickly.

    So here’s where you can make a very savvy purchase: Jonata estate fruit that doesn’t quite make the cut for the wine above trickles down into this Paring bottling—for twenty-five bucks! 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 10% Petit Verdot. Aged in the very best French oak money can buy, including Taransaud and Sylvain. Bottled unfined and unfiltered. It’s a ludicrous value for the money, mostly intended for by-the-glass pours in restaurants—but we got our hands on some!

    You know the wine will be awesome just from the aromas... Big name flavor at a fraction of the price, this blend is super well balanced. Big on the palate and seamless as it his the taste buds, a little bit of white pepper stands out to give a nod to those looking for "food friendly" options. Rounded and smooth, this is truly a great bottle. Get one to try and a case to lay down!
