An outstanding blend of 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Cabernet Franc, 7% Malbec, 5% Merlot & 3% Petit Verdot from La Jota Vineyard on Howell Mountain this is a stunning wine in this vintage. It instantly begins to impress with its seductive aromas of ripe blackberries and dark cherries which are woven together with roasted coffee, exotic spices, leather, mint and hints of fresh flowers. On the palate this possesses medium to full body with a beautiful plush, velvety texture that adds further appeal. It continues to impress with its outstanding depth and length from start to finish. Overall, this is a simply fantastic red that is great today, but will benefit from 3-4 years of age and flourish over the next 15 years.
