    Winemaker Notes
    This captivating wine is deep and rich, yielding aromas of anise, blackberry, and a touch of sage. It is uncommonly smooth and well balanced, with richly textured tannins and flavors of blueberry and mocha toast. La Jota’s signature line of bright minerality runs the length of this long, satisfying wine. The grapes for this Cabernet Sauvignon come from La Jota’s Howell Mountain vineyard and the historic W.S. Keyes vineyard nearby. The volcanic soils of this unique area, high on a mountain plateau, surrounded by whispering forest and bathed in a steady, gentle wind, have been the source of award-winning wines for over a century. This is the birthplace of La Jota terroir.

    Tasting Notes
    On the palate, the 2014 La Jota Cabernet Sauvignon has dark chocolate, espresso, ripe blackberry, and a hint of Petit Verdot finishing with a great mid palate weight and earthy tannic structure, there is no doubt you are drinking a Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon.

    95: Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
    The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon is 75.5% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Cabernet Franc and the rest Merlot, Petit Verdot and Malbec, aged in 89% new French oak. The wine displays the great fruit that is possible from these two sites owned by the Jacksons. It has an opaque purple color, a big, sweet kiss of crème de cassis and blackberry with a touch of lead pencil shavings, vanilla and incense. It is full-bodied and dense, with moderately high tannins but beautiful sweetness and fruit. Drink it over the next 25-30 years.

    93: Wine Spectator
    A dense and fruity red with blackcurrant and strawberry character. Full body and a round and chewy finish. Needs two to three years to soften.

    92: Wilfred Wong of Wine.com
    Not for the faint of heart, the expressive and bold-striking 2014 La Jota Vineyard Co. Cabernet Sauvignon is a big wine with plenty to offer. The wine's black fruit, tar, and sweet oak aromas and flavors complement its layers of palate richness. Pair it with a well-marbled Porterhouse steak. (Tasted: October 30, 2017, San Francisco, CA)
