Ladera Napa Cabernet Rouge 2005
Free Shipping* on Full Case orders Why? Consistently one of the finest 'boutique' production Napa Cabernets under $50, the new Ladera 2005 is the winery's finest release to-date. Don't miss this thriller! PORTHOS INSIDER SCOOP: Trust me, this is our top pick for up-and-coming, �boutique� winery to start collecting! Jump on board and order what you want now because our while this wine will age gracefully over the next decade we�ll sell out of our tiny allocation soon. TASTES: The new release of Ladera�s blend of their two renowned estate vineyards on Howell Mountain and �Lone Canyon� (next to Dominus) is remarkably �well built� to enjoy now (after decanting 1/2 hour) or anytime over the next 5 � 7 years. This Bordeaux-style Cabernet blend (includes trace amounts of Merlot, Petit Verdot, and Malbec) features superb richness, structure, depth and a sensuous texture that has us begging for more! This nectar bursts forth with blackberry fruit, anise and fresh herbs and a tannin structure that should age well for another 5 � 7 years. We believe this new vintage is even more complex and age-worthy than the impressive 2004 bottling. BRAVO!!!
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.

Aromas of blackberry and raspberry fruit; rose pedals, mint and white pepper with toasty and vanilla highlights. Dark plum and bramble berry flavors fill the mouth. The tannin structure is full and highly extracted, but soft and lush.
