95+ Points - Wine Advocate
"Blended of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8.5% Cabernet Franc, 7.5% Merlot, 6% Malbec and 3% Petit Verdot, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain has a deep garnet-purple color and nose of warm cassis, black berry pie and mulberries with touches of cedar, red roses and cloves plus a touch of cigar boxes. Medium to full-bodied, the palate has a great core of black and blue fruit layers framed by firm, ripe tannins and seamless freshness, finishing long. 2,362 cases produced." -RP, 12/29/17

95 Points, "Cellar Selection" - Wine Enthusiast
"Exotic herb and floral tones start off this brawny full-bodied wine. Plum and black currant flavors underscore bristling acidity and a well-built tannic structure, as secondary characteristics of sage, cedar and oak emerge. This should be put away and enjoyed 2025–2030." -VB, 12/31/18

95 Points - Wine Spectator
"This is vivid and beautifully rendered, with a dense yet racy core of unadulterated cassis, boysenberry and blackberry puree flavors, flecked with anise, light bramble and polished ganache notes. The long finish shows a great tug of tarry earth while the fruit drives on. Best from 2021 through 2040. 1,700 cases made." -JL, 2/28/19

92 Points - Vinous
"Another compelling, delicious wine, La Jota's 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon is gorgeous. Racy and opulent in the glass, the 2015 exudes depth in its plump, dark-fleshed fruit. Chocolate, plum and licorice infuse the finish in this opulent, flamboyant Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink it over the next decade or so." -AG, Mar/2018
