LA JOTA VINEYARD Merlot, Howell Mountain 2015

The 2015 Howell Mountain Merlot from La Jota instantly impresses from the second its in the glass. It opens to bold aromas of boysenberries, kirsch cherries, and blueberries, which are accompanied by fresh violets, licorice and sage nuances. On the palate this is full-bodied, with nciely polished tannins and a gorgeous opluent texture. Showing remarkable depth and concentration, this continues to impress as layers of ripe dark fruits, spices, graphite and hints if dark chocolate flavors all build up to the long, supple finish. While this is already extreamly appealing, this Merlot also has what it takes to age remarkably well.
