One of the best Cabernets under $50. The Ladera 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."
