1996 La Jota Howell Mountain Selection Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #500445
The epitome of Howell Mountain terroir. Ripe plum, blackberry briar and a mouthful of juicy blueberry temper the rustic charm that made Howell Mountain famous. Modest French oak contributes texture as well a distinct allspice note. The fruit promised in the nose delivers in the mouth.

ROBERT PARKER REVIEW: The 1996 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain Select is a beautifully rendered wine with an opaque plum color, and knock-out aromatics of cedarwood, cassis, cigar box, and roasted Provencal herbs. With more structure than the 1997, it is a jammy, rich, concentrated, full-bodied wine that can be drunk now or cellared for two decades.
WINE SPECTATOR REVIEW: Ruggedly tannic, with an earthy streak running through the complex core of currant, mineral and cocoa flavors, finishing with a rich, tannic aftertaste.
Classic Cabernet in every sense of the word! Cassis, black cherry, tobacco briar and toasty, vanilla oak are only the beginning. Jammy fruit flirts with bitter chocolate, and the whole is complemented by a violet-scented bouquet. After ten years of production, this Cabernet has hit its stride and each vintage claims its own set of admirers. Classic Howell Mountain
