[4533] Not decanted, drank over 1.5 hours. Classic Cali CS qualities. Cherry, cassis, oak, berries. Initially over-oaked, a good wine now and may be better in the future. But my impression was that it was over-manipulated and contrived almost too round. Have another but will hold for now. Preferred the Insignia 00 by a long-shot. 89-91

This is a previous selection from the Gold Medal Wine Club-Platinum Series. Robert Whitley, Copley News Service was impressed enough to rate the Ladera Cabernet Sauvignon Lone Canyon Vineyard 2002 a lofty 95 Points,and commented, “I’m inclined to wonder why the world needs another $65 Cabernet Sauvignon. After I tasting the wine, however, I’m seriously pleased they’re not asking $100, because it is that good. This is a powerhouse cabernet, very uncommon richness and depth.” Wine Enthusiast magazine honored the wine with 93 Points, and as a Cellar Selection— “Ladera has been producing age worthy Cabernets for the last few years and this is surely one. As rich and dense in tannins as it is, it’s shockingly forward in blackberry and cherry fruit flavors, while a plethora of new French oak adds even more sweetness. The result is voluptuous now, but it should age effortlessly.” Wine Spectator rated the wine a solid 92 Points, “Rich and intense, with a tight, concentrated core of earthy currant, mineral, wild berry, sage and cedar.” Robert Parker Jr., Wine Advocate chimed in with 92 Points. “Rich, full-bodied, intense, and powerful… a masculine cabernet.” Aged for 22 months. 98% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Petit Verdot. Enjoy now through 2010.

Winemaker's Notes:

Big, bold and age-worthy with deep layers of dark plum, blackberry, cassis, licorice and a delicious hint of mocha glides across your palate in a flavor symphony to the end. The elegant, plush tannins will keep this well "built" wine together as it ages gracefully for the next 5 - 7 years! 92 Points Wine Spectator
