2000 La Jota Vineyard Co.
Howell Mountain Cabernet Franc
Howell Mountain, Napa Valley, CA
The 2000 vintage was a picturesque vintage for Napa – a mild growing season with even temperatures were perfect for developing a cellar worthy Howell Mountain Cabernet Franc. The nose of the 2000 La Jota Cab Franc displays classic signs of careful aging with dried cherries and candied walnuts with notes of cedar and musk. The wine opens with a soft texture and lends itself to toast and spice flavors with notes of Darjeeling tea, ending with a lengthy finish.
