Ratings & Reviews
96 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"Made from 100% Cabernet Franc, the 2015 Cabernet Franc Howell Mountain has a very deep purple-black color, revealing a drop dead gorgeous perfume of red roses, violets and black tea over a core of kirsch, red currants and black raspberries, with wafts of cinnamon stick and dried herbs. Medium-bodied, very finely textured and refreshing in the mouth, it offers wonderful perfumed red fruit layers and a long, mineral-laced finish. 522 cases produced." - Lisa Perrotti-Brown (Dec 2017)

95 Points & Editors' Choice - Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
"There are simply not enough wines of this variety at this level from the Napa Valley so this stands out in more ways than one. Blueberry, blackberry and cinnamon provide a warmth of inviting and voluptuous layers of flavor that are buoyed by violet and lavender aromas, while softened tannins allow the texture to impress." - VB (Dec 2018)

93 Points - James Suckling:
"Fresh blackcurrants, herbs, ivy, licorice and dried violets. Full-bodied with lovely tangy fruit, a real dash of acidity, grippy tannins and a long, structured finish. Drink in 2021." (May 2018)

92 Points - Antonio Galloni:
"TLa Jota's 2015 Cabernet Franc is fleshy, dark and expressive. Mocha, espresso, grilled herbs, licorice and spice notes give the 2015 lovely aromatic depth to play off the natural richness of the fruit. There is a good bit of tannin that is going to need time to soften. This is very nicely done." (Mar 2018)
