"Love You Bunches" Carbonic Sangiovese 2021

From my gal (whose palate is much better than mine but thinks tracking wine is too much work): Chilled and perfect. Dusky, ruby plum colour. Smells like sweet Alberta wild rose, cranberries, sour cherry, pie spice and a damp evening. Tastes like tart cherry, bell peppers and cola bottle candies. The chilledness walks a fine line between bright acidity and subtle tannins at the end. — 3 days ago

Jonata Winery

La Sangre de Jonata Ballard Canyon Syrah 2013

Must buy & age
Parker 96 review

Cofermented with 2% Viognier, the Syrah-dominated 2013 La Sangre de Jonata is another terrific 2013 from winemaker Matt Dees that checks in near the top of the vintage. Full-bodied, concentrated and with bright acidity, it reveals classic notes of black fruits, pepper, violets, spring flowers and tons of minerality. It will be better in another 2-3 years and keep for decade or more after that.

This is a new one to me… 2 hour decant left me happy as this wine has a smooth and silky texture with ripe cherry and Asian spice notes. — 23 days ago
