1996 La Jota Howell Mountain Selection Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #300996 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 1996 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain Select is a beautifully rendered wine with an opaque plum color, and knock-out aromatics of cedarwood, cassis, cigar box, and roasted Provencal herbs. With more structure than the 1997, it is a jammy, rich, concentrated, full-bodied wine that can be drunk now or cellared for two decades. This beauty remains one of the better values in great California Cabernet Sauvignon. (RP) Inner quote mark (12/1998)

91 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Ruggedly tannic, with an earthy streak running through the complex core of currant, mineral and cocoa flavors, finishing with a rich, tannic aftertaste. Inner quote mark (4/1999)

88-90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Currant aroma complicated by floral, spicy and minty nuances. Aromatic and gamey in the mouth; bright and sweet. Finishes long and firmly tannic, with distinct leather, animal and cigar ash notes. Inner quote mark (5/1998)
