Description

    La Jota Cabernet Sauvignon 1996
    Anniversary Release
    2owc
    Imperial (2)


    "The 1996 Cabernet Sauvignon 15th Anniversary Release (1,050 cases produced) boasts an opaque purple color, as well as beautiful aromas of smoke, blackberries, Asian spices, charcoal, and subtle truffle-like scents. Huge, massive, and full-bodied, with phenomenal flavor extraction, and beautifully integrated tannin and acidity, this flamboyant, exceptionally well-endowed wine continues the succession of titanic wines made under this label. Anticipated maturity: 2002-2027." (96 pts. Robert Parker, Wine Advocate #120, Dec. 1998)

    “Fresh ruby-red. Briary aroma of blackberry, cherry cola, mocha and licorice. Rich, superripe [sic] dark berry flavors are fresh and very intensely flavored; dense and layered. The substantial dusty tannins coat the entire palate. Very long on the back end. This seemed to grow fresher and more complex as it opened in the glass.” (92 pts. Stephen Tanzer, Vinous, May 1999)


    Estimate: $1,200 - $1,500.
