La Jota Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain 2003

Member Review by Philip James:

Second bottle was much better - Solid tannins, rich fruits (a real crumbly baked pie flavor) with a solid finish.

Extremely rich, well balanced wine - full of cherry flavors with spiced fruit cake notes. Soft and supple with a mineral mid palette. Very nice finish.

Straw and some hollowness - this bottle was clearly corked.

Wonderful nose, jammy, with a hint of earthiness. Thoroughly enjoyed with our prime beef ribeyes. Decanted the 2nd bottle, seemed to change the nose, more earthy and smokey than fruit. Loved it.

Wine Tasting NotesInitially, cherry cola, dark berry and vanilla bean aromas flood from the glass; then back notes of rosemary and mineral emerge as vivid reminders of the vineyard site. The palate exhibits a ripe cherry, pomegranate and fresh herb/earth character, carried through a long finish by the wines velvety tannins.
