La Jota Cabernet Sauvignon 2018 Review

Howell Mountain is one of the most expressive wine regions for Cab in the world. There have been vines in these craggy corners since the 19th century. The vineyards of La Jota are some of those. The current stewards of this property are doing an amazing job continuing the La Jota legacy in this bottle. Drying nose with blackberries and soft hints of oak along with the savory aroma of peppered meat. This wine could use a few years in bottle to collect itself but, decanted, it drinks well now.
