Ladera Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

$39.99

One of the best Cabernets under $50. The Ladera 2012 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is a blend of the two excellent estate vineyards of Ladera, the Lone Canyon Ranch and the Howell Mountain. previous vintage 90 Points Robert Parker: "The least expensive effort, and a top value for a Napa Cabernet, is the Cabernet Sauvignon Napa. A dark ruby/plum-colored blend of 96% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Petit Verdot and Malbec, it offers up notes of plums, cassis and blue fruits, silky tannins, a fleshy, ripe style and not a hard edge to be found. This impressive effort is the type of Cabernet Sauvignon that normally costs 2-3 times the price. Drinkable now, this sleeper of the vintage will age for a decade or more."

This is a dark and extracted wine smelling of black currants, pencil lead, and floral notes such as violets. Very young, moderate grip, dark cassis berry with black cherry overtones. To me, this is prototypical mountainside Cabernet Sauvignon from Northern California. I would love to taste this in another 10 years when it settles down.

Always a solid wine and this one did not disappoint. It's hard to find Napa Cabs at $35 or less, so it's always good to have a few of these around

Tasted and bought at the winery a few years ago. Not what I remember. Hopefully other bottles will be better.

A distinct Napa cab. Young but full of promise.
