Robert Parker (94)

Composed of 74% Cabernet Franc, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Petit Verdot and 2% Merlot, the 2015 El Alma de Jonata gives a deep garnet-purple color and vibrantly scented nose of red currants, black cherries and rose hip tea with hints of tobacco, pencil shavings and underbrush. Medium to full-bodied, the rich, decadent fruit is nicely framed by firm, grainy tannins plus plenty of freshness, finishing long and perfumed.

James Suckling (94)

Wet earth and dried fruits with hints of chalk, chocolate flakes and berries. Full body, yet balanced and refined. Very long and full of place. A beauty. Mostly cabernet franc.

The 2015 El Alma de Jonata is going to need at least a few years to come into its own, as the tannins are quite prominent. The 2015, with its strong Cabernet Franc imprint, is concentrated, layered and full of promise. I expected the Alma to be a bit more expressive given the natural richness of the year, but its reticence is likely a good thing for the future, especially as the Franc character starts to open up with cellaring.

Showing awesome aromatics, as well as an incredible depth on the palate, the 2015 El Alma de Jonata (74% Cabernet Franc, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Petit Verdot and Merlot) reveals an inky purple color as well as killer notes of blackcurrant, spring flowers, dark chocolate, bay leaf and licorice. Possessing full-bodied richness, gorgeous purity of fruit, lots of chalky tannin, and a great finish, this is easily a candidate for the finest Cabernet Franc made in America. It needs 4-5 years of cellaring and will keep for two decades.
