"The 2013 vintage was one of great success. An early spring and endless summer provided idyllic growing conditions producing a bountiful crop of ripe, flavorful fruit. The 2013 Ladera Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon displays intense aromas of black cherry, vanilla and red licorice with savory notes of olive and dried herbs. The concentrated palate reveals brambly black fruits, toasty oak and polished tannins that push through to a long, lingering finish."
