Professional Reviews For This Wine


International Wine Cellar | Rating: 89

(blended with 10% merlot, 7% cabernet franc and 2% petit verdot; harvested on November 4!): Good red-ruby. Rich, briary aromas of red berries, coffee, minerals and tobacco leaf. Dry, intense and light on its feet, offering a very smooth texture and a restrained sweetness to its berry, coffee and herb flavors. In an Old World style but cleanly made. Finishes broad and dry, with plenty of early sex appeal.

About This Producer


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.

Wine Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon


Cabernet Sauvignon is perhaps the world's best known red variety, with its full-bodied, intense profile. An offspring of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc, it is the primary grape of Bordeaux's Left Bank (Medoc and Graves regions) and the Napa Valley, but can be found growing all over the world. Typical descriptors for Cabernet Sauvignon are cassis, cedar, mint, black pepper, eucalyptus, and pencil lead.
