Wine Review: This pitch black colored Cabernet Sauvignon from Howell Mountain is very Bordeaux like in style. It opens with a mild black olive bouquet with hints of vanilla, oak and eucalyptus. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied and balanced. The flavor profile is an oak influenced black olive with notes of blackberry and black pepper. The Panel also detected a hint of black currant mixed in as well. The finish is dry and its dusty tannins drift away nicely. The Panel suggested pairing this Cab with a veal chop or lamb burger. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker 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.
