Critical Acclaim

RP96 Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 28th Aug 2013

"More lively and pure, with brighter acidity than the 2010, the 2011 La Sangre de Jonata gives up plenty of violets, toast, licorice, chocolate and blackberry fruit as well as a full-bodied, supple and gorgeously focused and pure feel in the mouth. More approachable than the 2010, and scoring high on drinkability, this beauty will benefit from another year or thee and drink nicely through 2026. Drink 2015–2026." (96 pts.)

VN95 Vinous Jul 2014

"Rose petals, mint, savory herbs and dark-toned fruit meld together in the 2011 La Sangre de Jonata, a wine that has really come together over the last year. Exquisite and impeccably balanced in the glass, the 2011 is bright, articulate and wonderfully expressive. In this vintage, winemaker Matt Dees air-dried a portion of the fruit to give the wine a little more body, an approach that worked very well. Dollops of Grenache and Viognier round out the blend." (95 pts.)

ST94 Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar Nov/Dec 2014

"Bright purple. Expansive, exotic bouquet of black raspberry, potpourri, bacon fat, smoky minerals and incense; smells like a high-class Cote-Rotie. Fat and velvety on entry, then more taut in the mid-palate, showing superb energy and focus to its deep, sweet flavors of red and dark berries and violet pastille. Completely stains the palate but gives no impression of excess weight. A floral note lingers on the long, sappy finish, which betrays only a hint of dusty tannins." (94 pts.)

California

When it comes to US wine production, California is King. California wines account for almost 90% of all wines produced in the United States each year, and is home to the most celebrated vineyards and producers in the country. California is probably best known for its world-famous Cabernets and Chardonnays, many of which hail from its two most-acclaimed AVAs, Napa Valley and Sonoma County. Other prominent grapes used in California wines include Merlot, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, and Zinfandel (which California made popular).

United States

The United States now ranks fourth in the world in wine production behind, France, Italy, and Spain. While about 90% of that wine is produced in California, other states like Oregon, New York, and Washington are establishing themselves as prime spots for wine production, as well. Just about any variety of wine can be found in production somewhere in the United States.
