La Jota Vineyard W.s. Keyes Vineyard Merlot 2008
This wine, made to honor Howell Mountain vineyard pioneer W.S. Keyes, comes from some of the most highly prized Merlot vineyard land in the country. Winfield S. Keyes first planted grapes in this rugged vineyard in 1888, noting that the rocky, shallow soils here reminded him of Mediterranean islands near Sicily. Very much like his nearby neighbor, the La Jota Vineyard Co., he was convinced that Howell Mountain's high altitude and abundant sunlight could produce wines of great depth, complexity and ageability.
