Why do we love it?
It may be difficult or impossible to find and buy a bottle of Screaming Eagle but that's why we are here, to introduce you to El Alma de Jonata 2015, a top Californian wine with star ratings like 98+ pts by Jeb Dunnuck and 94 pts by Robert Parker. Well, if you are wondering how this wine is involved with Screaming Eagle read below and you will see!

Jonata winery is located in the Santa Ynez Valley and is the little "sibling" of the legendary Screaming Eagle. This itself is capable of getting goosebumps to any wine lover. The good thing is that Jonata is much more than just this. Its vineyards cover 33 hectares which are cultivated without chemicals and pesticides. In these areas, they grow fruits and vegetables and have their own animal farm, in the logic of sustainable cultivation. The viticulturist, Ruben Solorzano, closely monitors the vineyard to ensure the best fruit quality and then takes over the oenologist, Matt Dees, who divides the vineyard into 150 different plots which he vinifies separately to have many options for blending at the end.

For Jonata El Alma de Jonata 2015 the blend consists of 74% Cabernet Franc, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Petit Verdot and 2% Merlot. The wine ages in French oak barrels, 70% new, for over 18 months. The final touches to the wine come from the maître of the genre, Michel Rolland.

The soul (el alma) of Cabernet Franc is here to impress you!

EL ALMA DE JONATA 2015 - JONATA

PAIR IT

with braised beef with vegetables, striploin with aromatic herbal butter, or a roasted pork knuckle with red wine sauce.

Beef stew with red wine

  • 1 kg of boneless beef cut into bits
  • 4 tbsps. flour
  • 1 tsp. paprika
  • 2 tbsps. olive oil
  • 1 cup of dry red wine
  • 1 cube beef broth
  • 1/2 tsp. dry thyme
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 pack of small fresh mushrooms, whole
  • baby carrots
  • salt
  • pepper

 

 

Wipe the meat with kitchen paper to absorb excess moisture. Stir in a bowl 3 tablespoons of flour, 1 teaspoon of salt, paprika and pepper and sprinkle the meat with the flour mixture.

Sautee the meat in hot olive oil in moderate to strong heat, stirring frequently,  for 4-6 minutes or until it acquires a golden brown color. Remove the meat from the pot. Add the red wine, stirring well to incorporate with the meat residues from the bottom of the pot.

Put the meat back in the pot and add the broth, thyme, bay leaf, and 1/2 teaspoon of salt.

Once it starts boiling, cover the pot, lower the heat in half and allow the meat to cook for about an hour, stirring occasionally. You can accompany your meat with wild rice.
