La Jota Howell Mountain (Napa Valley) Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

Standard

This 2014 La Jota Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon from Jackson Family Wines portfolio is currently listed on the La Jota website with the rider “limited availability, please enquire”, and is on offer by US retailers at US$100.

I got 24 bottles as part of my JFW allocation and there’s currently 13 left for sale.

I’m retailing it here at S$131 ea. which makes it spot on with a direct exchange conversion from the asking price in the US. It was released at US$85 but as Robert Parker noted, it was unlikely to remain at that price.

Enjoy!
