Drink now through to 2040. Decant 1 hour before serving.

La Jota was founded in 1898 by Swiss immigrant Frederick Hess who purchased 327 acres of land and became one of Napa Valley’s early pioneering winemakers. More recently the estate was purchased by the Jackson family, one of California’s most famous and successful winemaking families, who produce small batches of high mountain wines from 28 acres of prime vineyards.

The grapes for this powerful Cabernet come from La Jota’s Howell Mountain vineyard as well as the historic W.S. Keyes vineyard. Here the volcanic soils and high mountain plateau provide a unique terroir that has produced exceptional wines for over a century. A small proportion of Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Malbec is blended in with the Cabernet to add extra complexity and the young wine is aged in 90% new French oak barrels for 19 months before release.

This is a truly magnificent Cabernet with punchy cassis and dark berry character complemented by solid tannins and a muscular structure that will respond very well to extended cellaring over the next couple of decades. It can also be enjoyed now alongside hearty dishes such as beef stews, barbecued ribs or a prime steak and fries.
