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.

Blackberries on the nose with flavors that expand with chocolate and spice after it has opened up and initial tannins mellow

Napa Cab Franc is fun! It has a ton of personality and is approachable and food friendly. I highly recommend giving it a try.
