The 2019 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.
The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon is another superb wine from La Jota. Rich and explosive, the 2019 possesses tremendous density and plenty of mountain power. A rush of black cherry, blackberry, licorice, spice and menthol builds into the huge finish. This is a fabulous vintage for the La Jota Cabernet.
The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain is 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, with small proportions of Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Merlot and Petit Verdot. It's ripe and rich, with plenty of cassis, hints of cinnamon and cedar and nuances of bay leaf on the nose. Full-bodied and velvety, it's remarkably easy to drink, finishing mouthwatering and long.
Gorgeous crème de cassis, plums, graphite, crushed stone and tobacco all emerge from the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon, another rich, medium to full-bodied, concentrated, dense, and incredibly impressive 2019 from this estate. It opens up nicely with time in the glass, but there's enough depth and structure here to warrant a solid 2-4 years of bottle age.
