2016 La Jota Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon

On the palate, the 2016 La Jota Cabernet Sauvignon has blackberry, rosemary, subtly Asian spice, and a hint of Petit Verdot finishing with a great mid palate weight and earthy tannic structure, there is no doubt you are drinking a Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon.
