2012 La Jota Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain Napa

Share on Facebook

A big bouquet lots of dark currant and black berry fruit, dark chocolate, a good amount of fresh black earth and dark tobacco spice coming out as this wine opens, very complex nose.  A similar flavor profile to the Merlot in terms of the minerality this wine has a bit more tannins on the finish but still has excellent balance along with a firm hand of acidity the fruit is very approachable but this wine needs time the finish is a bit dry bitter coco notes at the end, but everything here is in proportion just needs time better on the second day.  finish 50+      Most Excellent
