The 2004 La Sangre de Jonata (100% Syrah) was aged 19 months in 60% new French oak and 40% two-year old French wood. It offers beautiful chocolate blackberry charcoal acacia flower and roasted meat characteristics rich full-bodied flavors lovely purity refreshing acids and ripe tannin. Drink this powerful yet graceful Syrah over the next 10+ years. It appears 2006 has produced slightly lighter but high-class wines without the weight and power of the 2005s. The Syrah Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Franc are especially noteworthy. The only wine that did not excite me was a non-vintage blend of 81% sweet botrytised Semillon and 19% Sauvignon Blanc. A combination of 2004 2005 and 2006 the La Miel de Jonata was decidedly monolithic and one-dimensional compared to the other brilliant wines from this spectacular new producer in the Santa Ynez Valley. Fasten your seatbelts as these wines will give purchasers a serious ride for their money!
