Yet another Napa Quake survivor. Probably my favorite winery and wine (really the Cabernet Franc) this old friend (was going to gal, but trying stay under the radar) held up just fine. @LaJotaVineyards — 14 days ago
Showing great now. Gave it an hour and it evolved over the next 4. Starts with nose of dusty strawberries, sandalwood, leather, and earth. Resolved tannins, blackberry, sour cherry, and a little black raspberry. Definitely a tartness to the fruit. Shows some age too with a little prune and leather.
This wine is a sentimental favorite as it was the first wine we had at a tasting 10 years ago on my wife and my (almost) first date. — 22 days ago
