2018 Cabernet Sauvignon

wine details

The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon exudes a regal sensibility from the glass. Plum, dark licorice and gravelly earth dance forth on the nose, while blackberry, dark roasted coffee and toasted oak seamlessly integrate on the palate. This vintage continues the legacy of truly profound Cabernet grown on the forested slopes of Howell Mountain.

2018 Merlot

wine details

The balance between nobility and approachability are the continued hallmarks of the La Jota Howell Mountain Merlot. Sourced from vineyards with pedigrees dating back to the 1800s, this wine continues to carry the torch of Howell Mountain’s greatness. The aromatics are lifted with plum, huckleberry and minerality leading the way. Bittersweet chocolate and dried herbs add the punctuation to an incredibly long balanced finish.

2018 Cabernet Franc

wine details

Sourced from some of the oldest Cabernet Franc vines in the Napa Valley, this wine proudly pays homage to the history of this incredible site. Star anise, pain de grille and raspberry jam are delicately interlaced on the nose. The tannins are pronounced but integrated and the balanced acidity drives a long dense finish.

2017 W.S. Keyes Vineyard Chardonnay

wine details

The inaugural vintage of our La Jota W.S. Keyes Vineyard Chardonnay comes from a cherished vineyard block planted in the historic W.S. Keyes Vineyard in 1999. With bracing minerality, refreshing acidity, and notes of white peach, crisp pear, and freshly baked bread, this is a Chardonnay that is ready to drink now, but also built to age.
