LA JOTA VINEYARDS Cabernet Sauvignon, Howell Mountain 2012

The La Jota Estate vineyard is located on a high volcanic plateau overlooking Napa Valley. Fruit was utilized from the state vineyard as well as the W.S. Keyes Estate vineyard, which is located one mile from their estate vineyard. The 2012 is comprised of 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Cabernet Franc, 8% Petit Verdot, 4% Merlot. It saw 20 months in French Oak (89% new) and weighs in at 14.5% alcohol. The wine opens with gorgeous aromatics of anise, cassis and red bell pepper. On the palate there are rich, concentrated flavors of anise, Crème de cassis, blackberry and black olive, backed by a wonderful dense, viscous mouthfeel. This wine is lovely right now but needs another year or two in the bottle. (Best 2016-2035) - November, 2015 (OB)
