Made from a classic northern Medoc blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (93%) and Merlot as well as Petit Verdot the 2005 El Desafio de Jonata boasts an inky/purple color as well as a moderately intense nose of forest floor earth blackberries creme de cassis licorice and incense. Full-bodied and powerful with high but sweet well-integrated tannins this cuvee builds incrementally on the palate (it is full-bodied) but displays wonderful freshness vibrancy and precision. Another tour de force in winemaking it should drink effortlessly for 15+ years.
