Winemaker's Notes:

The 2009 Ladera Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon produced a fruit-driven wine with an intense nose and flavors, great texture and seamless balance. Aromas of ripe plum and black cherries are complemented by notes of cedar and anise. The palate is layered with black fruits, sweet oak spice and ripe tannins that linger to a long velvety finish.

About Ladera:

Ladera Vineyards is located in the Howell Mountain appellation of the Napa Valley at an elevation of 1800 feet. The winery was originally built in 1886 and is listed in the official book of ghost wineries of Napa Valley. The proprietors, the Stotesbery family, have completely restored the old stone building, returned it to its original intent as a gravity flow winery and added nearly 18,000 square feet of caves for barrel storage. In addition to the Howell Mountain Appellation Cabernet Sauvignon, Ladera also produces a vineyard-designated Cabernet called Lone Canyon Vineyard. Both wines express their hillside vineyard heritage and hence the mantra: hillside estate Cabernet.
