Ladera Cabernet Howell Mountain 2009
Antonio Galloni (Wine Advocate): Ladera's 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon is a relatively simple, straightforward offering in this vintage. Plums, sweet spices, crushed flowers and menthol are woven together nicely. The wine's mid-weight structure suggests it is best enjoyed upon release and for a handful of years thereafter. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2019. (Dec 2012)
The Ladera story has many facets; each very important to us and our heritage. We focus on our wines but you can’t talk about wine without knowing about the winemaking and there would be no winemaking without a winery. Our 1886 stone winery is our history and its foundation supports the balance of our efforts.
