Money. Needs time, but I love it when a Merlot is the star of the show. And Merlot is undoubtedly the showboater here.

Absolutely excellent. Deep and dark. Well integrated and super velvety tannins. Very cote rotie like with notes of bacon fat, crushed rock, and black pepper. Great mouthfeel

From the sister vineyards of Screaming Eagle, Jonata definitely shows traces of her sisters pedigree at 1/100th of the price! Great Napa value.
