K&L Notes

In recent years, winemaker Matt Dees has become known as one of the top winemakers in the state of California. He makes the wines for Jonata, The Hilt, and Paring, plus a few other side projects and consulting roles. Jonata is the sister winery of the legendary Screaming Eagle estate in Napa and focuses largely on Bordeaux and Rhône varietals planted at their fascinating site in Ballard Canyon. The Hilt is essentially Jonata’s Pinot Noir and Chardonnay project from top vineyards in Sta. Rita Hills (plus some Santa Maria fruit, namely Solomon Hills vineyard). Paring is a project that underpins both Jonata and Hilt, taking parcels of fruit and barrels that don’t fit the style of either brand and essentially ends up being some exceptionally delicious juice for an incredibly modest price point! Winemaker's notes: 81% Sémillon, 19% Sauvignon Blanc. 75% new French oak 225L barrels, 25% neutral French oak 225L barrels. "Solera" method from vintages 2004-07. Kept in un-topped, un-sulfured barrels. Enticing notes of lemon custard and orange marmalade. Cointreau-like nose. Focused sweet flavors of nectarine and candied peaches. Bracing acidity balances out the sweetness and the caramelized flavors seem endless on the finish."

    Mostly vin de paille style wine made from dried fruit. Unctuous, honeyed, wonderfully complex nutty, sherry-esque notes. I’m looking forward to showing off this wine during the holidays.
