Blend: 93% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Malbec, 2% Merlot,
1% Petit Verdot
Vineyard Notes: The 2013 Ladera Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced from an ever changing array of blocks from our Estate vineyards. Each site compliments one another offering differences in clones, soil and micro-climates, that when blended result in a consistently rich, complex wine with striking aromas and intense fruit expression.
To this we then add just the right amount of other blending varietals to end with a very approachable but still intense wine. Picking for this vintage occurred between September 19th and October 28th, 2013,
Cellar Notes: The 2013 Ladera Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is a blend of Bordeaux varietals with Cabernet Sauvignon being the backbone of the blend. A combination of select lots were individually harvested, hand sorted, then de-stemmed to small open top fermenters before the final blend was assembled. Aged for 18 months in 55% new French oak and bottled on May 18th, 2015.
Winemaker Notes: The 2013 vintage was one of great success. An early spring and endless summer provided idyllic growing conditions producing a bountiful crop of ripe, flavorful fruit.
The 2013 Ladera Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon displays intense aromas of black cherry, vanilla and red licorice with savory notes of olive and dried herbs. The concentrated palate reveals brambly black fruits, toasty oak and polished tannins that push through to a long, lingering finish.
