2019 Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon

wine details

The 2019 Cabernet is exceptionally expressive after a few minutes in the glass. Blackberry, plum, tobacco and anis seamlessly integrate on the palate. The wine is framed by broad tannins and the finish carried by a beautifully balanced acidity.

2019 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.

2019 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.

2019 W.S. Keyes Vineyard Merlot 3 Bottle Collector Set

wine details
 

"The 2019 vintage brought us lots of winter rain, fairly frequent fog events in the spring, and a mild summer with just a few short heat spikes. Uneventful fall weather allowed for extended hang time, and our last fruit came off the vines November 1. This vintage of the W.S. Keyes Merlot displays deep characteristics of dark fruit, Asian spice, crushed gravel and a subtle note of toast. The wine has a weighty mouthfeel balanced by soft tannins and lingering acidity.”

2021 W.S. Keyes Vineyard Chardonnay

wine details

“The 2021 W.S. Keyes Chardonnay opens with a delicious nose of apple, pear and musky jasmine blossom. Orchard fruits carry through to the palate, which intensifies with lemon zest then deepens into hazelnut and a little gunpowder. Unmistakable Howell Mountain minerality is infused throughout. The complex balance of fruit, floral and savory creates a wonderfully fresh
and evocative bottle."
