    La Jota wines are handcrafted at the original 1898 Fieldstone winery and hillside cave. From the low yielding vines of 28 mountain acres, La Jota produces Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and their crown jewel, the annual Heritage Release Cabernet Sauvignon (formerly the Anniversary Release).

    While growing grapes in the nutrient-lean, volcanic soils of their La Jota estate is a challenge, the rewards are undeniable. Highly concentrated flavors and muscular tannins slowly ripen to perfection, while the cool winds, diurnal temperature swings and high altitude keep the grape acids impeccably balanced, revealing the distinctive voice of the estate. Viticulturist Mariano Navarro and winemaker Christopher Carpenter gently tame tannins while allowing the intriguing mineral, spice and sweet forest loam characters unique to the estate to enhance the complexity of the opulent fruit.
