Highlights

  • 100% Cabernet Sauvignon grown in our historic Howell Mountain estate vineyard, which dates to 1888
  • Your wine is rich in red fruit, minerality and a savory herbal note, with desirable length and elegance
  • A cool climate, long growing season and sandstone-volcanic soils add to the wine’s intricacy
  • Native-yeast fermented, aging in French oak, and bottled unfined and unfiltered

Surrounded by forest, bathed in sunlight and wrapped in a gentle wind, our Howell Mountain La Jota estate vineyard is steeped in over 125 years of history. Your wine is captivating, deep and rich, yielding aromas of anise, blackberry, and a touch of sage. It is uncommonly smooth and well balanced, with textured tannins and flavors of blueberry and mocha. Our signature note of bright minerality runs the length of the long, satisfying finish. Aged in French oak and bottled unfined and unfiltered, your 100% Cabernet Sauvignon will age gracefully for decades.
