La Jota wines are handcrafted at our original 1898 fieldstone winery and hillside cave. From the low yielding
vines of 28 mountain acres, we 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
our 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.
Our 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.
