Winemaker Notes

The 2006 Ladera Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon is as deep and dark in color as it is in aroma and flavors. The nose on this wine is floral and smoky with rich blackberry aromas. The entry is elegant and soft with flavors of dark cherries, blueberry, cocoa, and spiced plum. The palate is layered with well structured tannins which lead to a long and complex finish of dark currant.

Wine Spectator
A tour de force Cabernet. Dense, plush, rich and concentrated, wall-to-wall flavors, with layers of black cherry, black currant, black licorice, mineral and graphite. Full-bodied and tightly wound with firm tannins, yet finishes with a mix of juicy berry and mineral flavors. Drink now through 2020. 3,000 cases made.

Wine Enthusiast
In 2000 Pat and Ann Stotsbery bought the Chateau Woltner property and replanted it to Cabernet Sauvignon. The carefully tended young vines and gentle handling of a gravity flow winery make it pretty, while the altitude and soils of the site give it Howell Mountain heft and minerality. One of our tasters, who used to live in Angewin, responded immediately to the wine: "It tastes like the blackberries that grow in the thickets on Howell Mountain," he said. It's dramatic black juice with its fair share of alcohol, an earth '06 with the potential to charm. For the cellar.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The star of this duo is the 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain, which offers up juicy notes of crushed rocks, flowers, dark berries, black currants, and earth. This elegant, medium to full-bodied Cabernet possesses both finesse and substance. Deep, pure, and rich with moderate tannins, it will benefit from 2-3 years of cellaring, and should drink well over the following 15 years.

Ladera, Napa Valley, California
2006 Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon
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.

The Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without thinking of the other. Although Cabernet has many important outposts throughout the wine world, nowhere else has it achieved such success (and, at the highest end, commanded such lofty prices) than in Napa. Here, it is responsible for bold, opulent, and dark-fruited wines with grippy tannins and a healthy dose of alcohol. The best examples can age for decades. Each of Napa’s smaller sub-AVAs imparts a different character to Cabernet, such as Rutherford’s famous dust or Stags Leap District's tart cherry flavors.
