Lovely balance between savory and sweet. Blackberry and black cherry, Mesquite and black truffle. Notes of violets, pepper and five spice powder. Floral, fruit-driven and effusively aromatic. Smoky, sweet and decadent with a massive core of black fruit. Dusty tannins start early and slowly encompass the entire palate. Earthy and complex, but ultimately round and generous with tannins that stretch the fruit to greater lengths. Tremendous grip. Absolutely beautiful today with some air. A decadent and towering Todos.
95 Points Jeb Dunnuck:
“Jonata’s Todos is always a kitchen sink blend, and the 2016 is 60% Syrah, 10% Cabernet Franc, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot, and the rest Petite Sirah and Viognier. It has stunning notes of black currants, crushed violets, liquid rocks, and graphite. This is followed by a full-bodied, beautifully pure, elegant wine that has terrific balance, awesome purity, and a great, great finish. Want to understand the style of this estate without shelling out the big bucks for the upper cuvées? Buy this wine.”
92+ Points Robert Parker:
“The 2016 Todos is a blend of 60% Syrah, 10% Cabernet Franc, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot, 4% Petite Sirah and 1% Viognier, aged in 35% new French oak. Deep purple-black, it opens with notes of tar, potting soil, chargrill and graphite with wild blackberries, dried floral perfume, hints of peppered meat and red and blue fruit sparks. Full-bodied, it gives up oodles of lush fruits with earthy accents, segueing to wonderful chocolate and baking spice, with a frame of firm, chewy tannins and freshness to lift, finishing long and chalky textured.”
