Jon Nathaniel is the dream project of a father and son: John Komes, founder of Napa Valley’s beloved Flora Springs Winery, and his son Nat, a Napa Valley native who has overseen operations at Flora Springs for over 15 years. At its core, Jon Nathaniel represents a return to John and Nat’s roots, to the small production, wine-without-compromise method of operating that defines artisan winegrowing. While respectful of tradition, Jon Nathaniel is also fearless, willing to embrace innovative techniques and technology in pursuit of the pinnacle of wine quality.
J(ohn)O(tto) N(at)athaniel is our tribute to our much missed son and brother, the late Otto Komes, who cherished being part of a winegrowing family. Otto Komes is a constant reminder to live with integrity and to fight for your passions.
Well, let's start with the fact that Bodacious is a red blend. Now we know the world is awash in red blends these days, but there aren't many (at this price anyway) from Napa Valley, and none like Bodacious. In 2015 we used not two or three but six varieties: 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Syrah, 19% Cabernet Franc, 11% Petit Verdot, 10% Merlot, 1% Malbec. Get out the calculator! So what do you get? A load of lush fruit – juicy red cherry, black raspberry, cassis; plus espresso and cola. Dusty cocoa, the kind we used to make chocolate milk with. And some good acid for structure. With a name like Bodacious, of course the wine is full-bodied and pleasurable, in fact, it offers up some pretty plush drinking right now.
