Red and black fruit. Violet, spice, saline and pencil shavings. M- acid, m body, m+ round tannin. Saline, red cherry, underripe berries, minerality. Very bright and refreshing. Needs a little more time.

This is one of the better cab francs I've had (though I need to try Detert on @Carl Fischer's recommendation). La Jota is becoming a favorite of mine...shouldn't be surprised as I'm a die-hard Howell Mountain fan. No traces of green pepper at all with this...got a nose of very slight toasted oak and blackberries. Long legs and a gorgeous purple ring/black core. Plum and cinnamon on the tongue. I'll take some more please.
