Mariano Navarro farms this 28-acre vineyard for the Jackson family, the wine made by Chris Carpenter in one of Napa Valleys old stone wineries (dating to 1898, built for the original vineyard). At elevations reaching 1,830 feet, with white rhyolite and red volcanic soils, the estate produces monumental reds like this bold 2012, its bloody, meaty, mineral-driven fruit lasting like a blast of crushed stone. The black fruit is juicy in the middle, hinting at red notes of pomegranate and persimmon, then tannins take over in the end, needing a thick-cut steak or years in bottle to relent. -Wine & Spirits

Rich and full-blown, with a deep core of zesty blackberry and wild berry, appropriately framed by dusty earth and cedary tannins. The finish is pleasantly rocky and rustic. Drink now through 2028. -Wine Spectator

The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon is a blend of 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Cabernet Franc, and the rest Petit Verdot and Merlot aged in 89% new French oak. La Jotas largest cuv'e (3,850 cases), it boasts a dense purple color as well as copious notes of licorice, cr¬me de cassis, road tar, charcoal and mulberries. With exceptional fruit intensity, full-bodied opulence, decent acidity and sweet, lush, well-integrated tannin, it should drink well for 10-15+ years. -The Wine Advocate

A soft and savory red with plum, raisin and spice aromas and flavors. Full body, velvety tannins and a fruity finish. Drink or hold. -James Suckling

The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon is one of the more complete, well-rounded wines in the La Jota range. Dark red and black cherry, plum, spice, new leather, smoke and licorice are some of the notes that wrap around the palate. The 2012 is dark, voluptuous and juicy, all signatures of the year. In 2012, the blend is 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Cabernet Franc, 8% Petit Verdot and 4% Merlot. -Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media
