2001 La Jota Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon
Warning!-> This wine needs to be decanted for a few hours at the very least. Howell Mountain Cabernet at it's best! The nose has beautiful aromas of orange pepper, red stone, and black fruits. This wine has pure and focused Cabernet flavors with evident varietal integrity; oak, blackberry, pepper, dark cherry and a very firm tannin structure that makes the finish dry and long. This is a really good bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon and a stellar example of what 2001 Napa Cab is all about. I score the wine 91-92 Points.
