Winemaker's Notes:

The nose on this wine is floral yet fruity with rich blackberry and cocoa aromas. The entry is elegant and soft with flavors of dark cherries, blueberry, cocoa, and spiced plum.

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.
