Taming Howell Mountain


The La Jota Vineyard Co. winery has deep roots in Napa Valley's winemaking history, dating back to 1898. Today, La Jota proudly carries on this great winemaking tradition by producing small lots of mountain Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Chardonnay from the winery's estate vineyard and nearby W.S. Keyes Vineyard.


Highly acclaimed winemaker Chris Carpenter has been making wines on Howell Mountain for more than two decades. He has continued to prove himself a worthy descendant of those far-sighted pioneers, putting a wealth of knowledge and hard-won mountain winemaking experience to use in near-perfect conditions at La Jota, and earning a reputation for taming Napa Valley's mountain tannins.


For the first time ever, we are proud to offer an exclusive 5L large-format vertical of historic Cabernet Sauvignon, sourced from Howell Mountain. Sitting above the coastal fog between 1,700 to 1,820 feet in elevation, these small-production wines ranging from the 2012 to 2015 vintages will be an excellent addition to your cellar. This library lot showcases the best Howell Mountain has to offer and the legacy of Chris Carpenter's mountain winemaking.
