"Cabernet Sauvignon dominated blend that includes 13% Merlot and 4% each of Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc, the 2014 El Desafio de Jonata gives up lots of blackcurrant, cedar, lend pencil and licorice aromas and flavors, medium to full-bodied richness, a light, elegant texture and notable, yet ripe tannin. It will merit an even higher score if it gains weight in bottle."
"Darker and more brooding with the essence of cassis. Tight and coiled as we would hope at this “baby” stage. Great expansion of fruit on the attack shows its potential. Sweet and substantial tannins build early and help define this young cabernet sauvignon. An absolutely refined and classic Desafio. We can’t wait to watch this wine grow." Matt Dees, Winemaker
