2012 La Jota Merlot Howell Mountain Napa

Share on Facebook

Very dense and rich on the nose with dark cherry and black plum fruit, dark chocolate, mocha and sweet herbs on the nose a gravelly graphite like mineral earthy note coming out the second day.  Good structure on the tongue with lots of ripe black berry fruit and round succulent tannins a bit dry on the finish but has good freshness and plenty of fruit to make this wine a candidate for the cellar wonderful balance through the finish.  Finish 45+    Most Excellent
