La Jota Howell Mountain Estate Cabernet Sauv ‘12
94 points ~ Robert M. Parker Jr., The Wine Advocate, October 2014
“...boasts a dense purple color as well as copious notes of licorice, crème de cassis, road tar, charcoal and mulberries.
With exceptional fruit intensity, full-bodied opulence, decent acidity and sweet, lush, well-integrated tannin, it should drink well for 10-15+ years”
La Jota Howell Mountain Estate Merlot ‘10
90 Points ~ Steve Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar, May 2013
“Good bright medium red. Musky, perfumed aromas of dark berries, pine needles, coffee, herbs and brown spices.
Sweet and fine-grained but juicy too, with lovely floral lift to the red berry and spice flavors.
Penetrating acidity extends the finish and gives it lift.”
Mt Brave Cabernet Sauvignon, Mt Veeder ‘12
92 points ~ Robert M. Parker Jr., The Wine Advocate, October 2014
“The star of the Mt. Brave trio of new releases is the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon…blueberry, licorice, beef blood, tobacco leaf
and forest floor aromas soar from the glass of this ripe, full-bodied, opulent wine.”
