LA JOTA 2011 CABERNET FRANC HOWELL MOUNTAIN 750mL

This Cabernet Franc wine comes from an exceptional little vineyard planted in 1976 next to La Jota's century-old stone winery on Howell Mountain. Grafted onto resistant St. George rootstock, it escaped the ravages of phylloxera to become one of the oldest Cabernet Franc vineyards in Napa County. The old vines self-regulate so there's no need to thin crop, pull leaves, or in any other way adjust the grape-to-canopy ratio. Year after year, the grapes are intensely flavored and beautifully balanced. Not many wineries produce Cabernet Franc and this wine definitely captures the essence of La Jota terroir.

Ripe strawberry and rose petal aromatics carry through on the palate with blueberry, green tea, white pepper, vanilla and a minerality that continues on the lengthy finish.
