La Jota Vineyard Co.

Single bottle of red wine on stone

2019 Cabernet Sauvignon

Howell Mountain, Napa Valley



At Howell Mountain, the moderate fall weather allowed the grapes to hang for quite a while; our last fruit was picked on November 1. The 2019 La Jota Cabernet is exceptionally expressive after a few minutes in the glass. Blackberry, plum, tobacco, and anis seamlessly integrate on the palate. The wine is framed by broad tannins and the finish is carried by a beautifully balanced acidity
