Winemaker Jade Barrett Notes
Vineyard Notes The 2014 Ladera Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced exclusively from Howell Mountain. The vineyard range in elevation from 1,600 to 1,800 feet and sits above the typical fog line receiving longer sun exposure throughout the growing season. The abundant sunshine, along with distinctive red, volcanic and mineral rich soils, allows the grapes to achieve full physiological ripeness, yielding ripe, flavorful wines with exceptional structure and great aging potential. Cellar Notes The 2014 Ladera Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon showcases the best our vineyard has to offer and delivers the full expression of its mountain origins. Comprised of the most promising lots of the vintage, the grapes were hand sorted, gently de-stemmed wit ...more... hout crushing and cold soaked for 7 days to extract maximum fruit characteristics. The wine was aged in 100% new premium French oak for 22 months before the final blend was assembled. Tasting Notes The 2014 Ladera Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon reveals a deep, garnet color with an intense bouquet of ripe blackberry, maraschino liqueur and charred wood. As the wine aerates, intriguing notes of baking spice, dark chocolate and bay leaf are revealed. The flavorful palate is concentrated yet elegant, layered with black fruits and fine structured tannins that extend to a long refreshing finish. Upon release, decant this beauty before serving to unlock all it has to offer. Best from 2020-2030.
