Ladera Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley, 2007
The Ladera story is a tale of two vineyards, almost at opposite ends of the Napa Valley. Lone Canyon Vineyard on the flank of Mt. Veeder rises to 1,100 feet; some areas are so rugged and steep it's difficult to stand upright. Ladera's Howell Mountain property sits at 1,800 feet; a gently rolling terrain, but set on a plateau high above the Napa Valley floor. Our name stands to remind us of the nature of our vineyards, our fruit and our wines, hillside, intense, distinct. They are 100% estate grown and produced. Alc. 14.2% by vol.
