Slightly more perfumed, with fantastic purity, the 2008 El Alma de Jonata (75% Cabernet Franc, 10% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Petit Verdot) offers up complex tobacco, lead pencil, spice box and gorgeous dark fruit to go with a seamless, full-bodied profile on the palate. A gorgeous showing, it has a long life ahead of it. Drink now-2022+. - Jeb Dunnuck

This pure Cabernet Franc shows wonderful aromas of leafy roses with incense and dark fruits. Full-bodied, with firm tannins and a gorgeous finish. Loads of fruit but sleek and racy. Dusty tannins. Excellent. Better in 2013.

A perfumed, kaleidoscopic bouquet displays scents of dark berry preserves, vanilla, licorice pastille, cola and pipe tobacco, with an intense overlay of floral oils. Broad, fleshy and sweet, offering intense blackcurrant and blueberry flavors that stain the palate. The vanilla and spice notes build strongly through the very long, sappy, penetrating finish. Impressively energetic for such a rich wine, and the tannins are strikingly harmonious.
