Description
The La Jota vineyard on Howell Mountain sits above fog line, overlooking Napa Valley. With warmer nighttime and cooler mid-day temps than the valley floor, the grapes here develop thicker skins that impart intense color, texture and structure to the wines. With this wine, you get a decadent, approachable palate of dark chocolate, espresso and ripe blackberry flavors, upheld by earthy tannins. Undeniably Howell Mountain at its classic best.

On the palate, this rich red wine exhibits dark fruit, espresso, toast, and a hint of herbaceousness, finishing with great mid palate weight, earthiness and firm tannins.
