La Jota Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mtn 16th Anniversary Release 1997

Winemaker's Notes:

93 points Robert Parker: The sensational black/purple-colored 1997 Cabernet Sauvignon 16th Anniversary Release is closed, but its emerging aromas of charcoal, blackberries, cassis, and minerals are promising. The wine is intense, ripe, with a layered, expansive richness, and exotic notes of Asian spices, beef blood, and assorted black fruits. Anticipated maturity: 2004-2025. (Jan 2000)
