"I love the upfront, sexy and polished 2013 Fenix, which is the estate’s Merlot-dominated blend. Incorporating 30% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot, this full-bodied beauty gives up loads of plum, chocolate, smoked herbs and underbrush in a rich, mouth-filling, hard to resist style. Drink it over the coming 10-15 years." ~JD

"The 2013 Fenix is another striking wine. A healthy dollop of Cabernet Franc adds aromatic lift and brightness to this super-expressive Merlot-based red, while veins of salinity extend the finish. Rose petal, pomegranate, sage, mint and blood orange give the Fenix an extra touch of exotic flair. Totally effortless and gracious, the 2013 Fenix is another winner from Jonata. The blend is 65% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot." ~AG

Robust and sexy. A veritable black hole of sweet black fruit and structure. Layers and layers of powdered tannins. Rose petals and cinnamon. Red licorice and dried strawberry. Soft and pillow-like mid palate attack. Immense. Supremely rich. Huge push of herb-laced bold fruit with notes of cedar. Erupts with wonderful fruit push on the finish. Cacao tannins. Salted caramel and toasty oak. Lingers with nuance of dried blueberries and charred steak. " ~ Winery notes
