The Paring Red (Jonata) 2016
JD93: The 2016 Red Wine checks in as a blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Cabernet Franc, 20% Merlot, and 10% Petit Verdot. Brilliant notes of cassis, tobacco leaf, damp earth, cedary herbs, and graphite all emerge from this concentrated, remarkably pure, elegant Bordeaux blend hat has building tannins and a great, great finish. It tastes like it costs three times the price.
VM90: The 2016 Red is fabulous. Inky, bold and pungent, with terrific fruit density, the 2016 has so much to offer. Succulent dark cherry, plum, spice, grilled herbs, leather and licorice burst out of this vibrant Cabernet Sauvignon-base blend.
