La Jota Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain Howell Mountain Selection 2008
Grapes grown at the La Jota Estate vineyard and Keyes vineyard. A selection of softer-textured Cabernet Sauvignon vineyard blocks is chosen to give this wine earlier approachability, while capturing full expression of La Jota's cool-climate terroir. The Keyes vineyard, a mile down the road and with a very different terroir, provides a 'pop' of bright fruit character and broader tannins.
Founded in the 1890s, La Jota Vineyard Co. overlooks Napa Valley from high upon Howell Mountain. The volcanic soils, elevation and climate of this unique site yield wines of great fruit intensity, structure and aging potential. Discover our rich history, our mountain vineyard and winemaking, and our century-old fieldstone winery — not to mention many unique opportunities to experience each of our exceptional Howell Mountain wines
