(2008 Vintage) This wine is as deep and dark in color as it is in aroma and flavors. The nose is floral yet fruity with rich blackberry and cocoa aromas. The entry is elegant and soft with flavors of dark cherries, blueberry, cocoa, and spiced plum.
(2008 Vintage) The 2009 Ladera Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon produced a fruit driven wine with an intense nose and flavors, great texture and seamless balance.
