The 100% Syrah offering the 2005 La Sangre de Jonata exhibits an inky/blue/purple hue along with a stunningly pure nose of melted licorice meat juices blackberries pepper and a hint of balsamic. It is a wine of extraordinary density richness high tannin beautiful purity laser-like acidity and superb texture as well as length. This remarkable Syrah is both powerful and elegant. Give it several more years of bottle age and consume it over the following 10-15 years

Explosively perfumed nose offers a wild array of red and dark berry liqueur floral oils and pungent herbs all underscored by crackling minerality. Deep and sweet with powerful cassis and black raspberry candied licorice and violet pastille flavors. This reminded me of a big-ticket single-site Chapoutier Hermitage. The sweetness is reined in by firm mineral and bitter chocolate but returns on the remarkably long juicy finish. Pretty amazing for a sophomore effort.
