Wine Enthusiast ReviewRated 96Classic Howell Mountain tannins, powerful and focused, but ripely sweet, frame opulent cherry, cassis, plum sauce and new oak flavors, and for all that, there's a crisp edge of acidity that makes everything clean and bright. Drink now through 2012.Wine & Spirits ReviewRated 94The graciousness of the fruit defies the tannic weight of this wine, leaving a velvet impression, remarkably approachable for a young Howell Mountain cabernet, and extremely delicious. It's from vines the Smith family, the founders of La Jota, originally planted in the late '70s. The structure is there, underpinning the fresh black fruit, the acidity edging it with eucalyptus. Plump and satin-textured on release, this should age into a beauty. Drink 2010-'12 with a grilled rib eye.Wine Tasting NotesThe Anniversary Release commemorates the anniversary of production and features small lot fermentations of the best vineyard selections. It's a deep purple color with dark fruit and a prominent spice box, tobacco, leather and toasty oak aroma. The mid-palate is pronounced with a sweet, long finish accompanied by hints of chocolate. This is a full-bodied, rich wine, full of jams and dense blackberry flavors. Its also reminiscent of a crisp autumn day on Howell Mountain when the vineyards become an aromatic mlange of pine needles, oak leaves and volcanic soils.
