Jonata Fenix Merlot 2017 750ML
Jonata Fenix "Phoenix" Merlot Bordeaux-style blend 2017 750ML
2017 JONATA Fenix bordeaux-style blend
Heady and perfumed with an intoxicating nose that immediately pulls you in with notes of ripe black fruit, almond brioche and violets. New leather, cracked peppercorns and blackberry preserves. Espresso beans. Generous and luxurious fruit saturates the palate. A wine of breadth and power that also boasts a truly silky texture. Stays buoyant and lively through the finish. To my palate this represents the most complete and compelling Fenix to date. So compelling that it is difficult to not drink this wine today. Decadent today, but also poised for further development and blossoming in the cellar. 40% Merlot, 32% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Cabernet Franc, 8% Petit Verdot. 630 Cases Produced.
