Bam 💥. I’ve had this lone bottle of Jonata resting in my cellar for the past six years. We had some friends over who had just returned from Santa Ynez and couldn’t make the time to visit Jonata; they weren’t sure what the fuss was all about. Well, now they do. This was absolutely killer right from the pop and pour. So much power yet there was an undeniable charm that just had us all smitten. And, at 14 years young, this was still so alive and downright youthful. There are decades of enjoyment left in these 2005 Desafio’s. Simply outstanding. — 3 years ago

Decided to pop one of these on the eve of our evacuation from the Carmel fire in California. Beautiful color! Notes of coffee and mocha with dark plum and cassis. The nose gets beautifully candied with terschiary aromas of smoldering madrone wood, tobacco and cedar. I can’t believe how amazing this is at 30+ years old and less expensive than the current vintage. I can part with some @ $39 if anyone wants. also have a large selection of other old port available at great prices... email@example.com — 2 years ago
Delicious, slightly cooler climate Syrah thanks to it being from Spring Mountain. Charles Smith from Smith Madrone told us to stop in as we drove back down the hill - the time was richly rewarded. Those who like something a little subtler in the glass will be rewarded. — 4 years ago
With flecks of green shining through its yellow robe, the 2019 Domaine Chantemerle Fourchaume is a brilliant young Chablis, a touch reticent in youth as you might expect but a very enjoyable wine nonetheless. The nose is a little muted for now, with glimpses of peach, chamomile and wet stone, while the palate is taut but generous, spilling out over the tongue with juicy lime, Granny Smith apple and terrific chalkiness. If it were a case, I’d look forward to trying this in a year or two’s time; alas, this was a lone half bottle but a great accompaniment to prawn orzo pasta.

If you want Amar lone and have a palate this is great. First off it has some lovely grippy texture. It’s not some stewy fruit blob that sludges it’s way down the palate. No noticeable heat. Juicy fruit. Lovely spice. Nice hint of bitterness on the finish. — 4 years ago
