The 2017 La Jota Vineyard Cabernet Franc from Howell Mountain is a testament to the art of winemaking. This 100% Cabernet Franc is a bold and structured red, offering a concentrated expression of dusty terroir, brooding dark fruits, and a medley of herbs. The palate is greeted with full-bodied intensity, supported by serious structure and refined oak, while nuances of leather and sage add complexity. With a recommendation to cellar, this wine promises to evolve beautifully, reaching its peak from 2027 to 2032. A perfect companion for hearty dishes and a jewel for collectors.
