La Jota Vineyard 20th Anniversary Heritage Release Cabernet Sauvignon, Howell Mountain, USA 2001 750ml
ROBERT PARKRThe most impressive wine of this trio is the 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon 20th Anniversary. Fashioned from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from the winery’s finest Howell Mountain lots, it boasts a dense purple color along with a big, sweet bouquet of boysenberries, blueberries, black currants, licorice, charcoal and damp earth. There is great fruit on the attack and mid-palate, plenty of tannin to be resolved and a fresh, long, concentrated, vigorous finish. It will benefit from another 2-3 years of cellaring and should drink well for 15+ years.
WINE SPECTATORA tough-edged, dense and concentrated wine, yet it's hard to look past the earthy, leathery notes and see only the ripe fruit. The currant and blackberry flavors have their merit, though it's too bad they're overshadowed by a leathery character.
