La Jota Vineyard Co. Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Howell Mountain, Napa Valley, California, United StatesAll La Jota fruit is sourced from the winery’s estate and from nearby W.S. Keyes Vineyard. La Jota Vineyard lies on a volcanic plateau, looking east over Napa Valley. 2016 is a Carpenter favourite that he ranks similar in quality to 2012 and 2013, and I agree. The wine is mountain hefty on the palate but with style. The attack is rich and stuffed with pure blackberry, black cherry, and a firm underside that supports its long, savoury Sonoma finish. You could cellar this a decade or two and simply watch it get better every year. Well done.Tasted: 30 May 2020Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 100.00 select private wine shops AB 100.00 select private wine shops Producer: La Jota Vineyard Co.Distributors: Summit Fine Wines
