1996 La Jota "15th Anniversary Release" Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon (1.5L)

SKU #1069639 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 1996 Cabernet Sauvignon 15th Anniversary Release (1,050 cases produced) boasts an opaque purple color, as well as beautiful aromas of smoke, blackberries, Asian spices, charcoal, and subtle truffle-like scents. Huge, massive, and full-bodied, with phenomenal flavor extraction, and beautifully integrated tannin and acidity, this flamboyant, exceptionally well-endowed wine continues the succession of titanic wines made under this label. Anticipated maturity: 2002-2027. (RP) Inner quote mark (12/1998)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark A dark, rich, plush, concentrated Cabernet, its layers of currant, anise, sage, cedar, tar and mineral flavors building for a long, rich aftertaste. (JL) Inner quote mark (4/1999)

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Fresh ruby-red. Briary aroma of blackberry, cherry cola, mocha and licorice. Rich, superripe dark berry flavors are fresh and very intensely flavored; dense and layered. The substantial dusty tannins coat the entire palate. Very long on the back end. This seemed to grow fresher and more complex as it opened in the glass. (ST) Inner quote mark (5/1999)
