La Jota Vineyard 2002 Estate Cabernet Franc (Howell Mountain)

It's the essence of cherries in this dry, intensely structured mountain wine. They blended it with 15% Cabernet Sauvignon to add tannic structure, but the cherry pie filling shines through, accented by two-thirds new French oak, which adds vanilla and sweet woody char. At nearly five years of age, the wine now has a soft, delicious dynamism that's best now and for another year or two.
