Ladera Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Spectator Review Rated 94 HIGHLY RECOMMENDED A tour de force Cabernet. Dense, plush, rich and concentrated, wall-to-wall flavors, with layers of black cherry, black currant, black licorice, mineral and graphite. Full-bodied and tightly wound with firm tannins, yet finishes with a mix of juicy berry and mineral flavors. Drink now through 2020. Wine Tasting Notes The Ladera Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon is a stunning wine totally in keeping with the excellent vintage and with the previous Ladera Howell Mountain Cabernets. It is fruit forward, with ripe aromas of the classic Howell Mountain black cherry, blackberry and plum hints which are intertwined with subtle oak nuances. On the palate, this wine is weighty but not flabby. The tannins are long, velvety and wet and are especially present in the wines mid-structure.

Lovely aromas of blackberries, minerals and dried flowers. Full bodied, with fine tannins and a berry and chocolate finish. This is balanced and very pretty, approachable now. Delicious. Why wait? 14+22+22+32. Find the wine James Suckling. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 2006 Ladera Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain Vineyard 750ml
