Napa Valley, California
Winemaker: Christopher Carpenter

Built of stone in 1898, the La Jota Vineyard Co. has deep roots in Napa Valley’s winemaking history. Today, Winemaker Chris Carpenter produces small quantities of mountain Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc from the winery’s estate La Jota Vineyard and nearby W.S. Keyes Vineyard.

The wines capture the intense fruit and mineral complexity of their cool-climate location on Howell Mountain.
