2012 Todos Jonata, Santa Ynez Valley

Defined by exuberant fruit, both red and black. Also shaped by familiar Jonata notes of smoked sausage, black pepper and black plum skin. Fruit sweetness and power also mixed with fennel and Indian spices. Plush fruit on the attack. Tremendous depth from the seemingly endless 2012 summer. Pure fruit throughout the attack and midpalate. Truly a pleasure to drink today. Perfectly balanced and evolved tannins. By no means a shrinking violet, but manages to retain exceptional overall balance. Syrah sexiness with cabernet sauvignon focus and structure.
