Winemaker Notes

This expression of cool Howell Mountain terroir comes from a selection of softer-textured Cabernet Sauvignon fruit. A small percentage of Merlot imparts plushness and broader tannins, while a dash of Petit Verdot from a small block near the winery adds intriguing spice character.

Critical Acclaim

WS 95
Wine Spectator
A beautifully defined wine, with deep, rich, intense and supple black currant flavors. It's pure and complex, with a pretty overlay of toasty oak flavors that blend together, creating a wine of great harmony and finesse.

La Jota Vineyards Co., Napa Valley, California
1987 Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon (6 Liter Bottle)
La Jota wines are handcrafted at our original 1898 fieldstone winery and hillside cave. From the low yielding vines of 28 mountain acres, they produce Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and our crown jewel, the annual Heritage Release Cabernet Sauvignon (formerly the Anniversary Release).

While growing grapes in the nutrient-lean, volcanic soils of the La Jota estate is a challenge, the rewards are undeniable. Highly concentrated flavors and muscular tannins slowly mature to perfection, while the cool winds, diurnal temperature swings and high altitude keep the grape acids impeccably balanced, revealing the distinctive voice of our estate.

Viticulturist, Mariano Navarro, and winemaker, Christopher Carpenter, understand the meticulous requirements of mountain farming and mountain winemaking. Their goal is to gently tame tannins while allowing the intriguing mineral, spice and sweet forest loam characters unique to our estate to enhance the complexity of our opulent fruit.

The result? La Jota wines offer elegance and cellar worthiness.

Napa Valley

Cabernet Sauvignon

The Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without thinking of the other. Although Cabernet has many important outposts throughout the wine world, nowhere else has it achieved such success (and, at the highest end, commanded such lofty prices) than in Napa. Here, it is responsible for bold, opulent, and dark-fruited wines with grippy tannins and a healthy dose of alcohol. The best examples can age for decades. Each of Napa’s smaller sub-AVAs imparts a different character to Cabernet, such as Rutherford’s famous dust or Stags Leap District's tart cherry flavors.
