Stunning, one of the most elegant and balanced Napa Cabs I've had all year.

Rich lush concentrated blackberries, blueberries, black plum, star anise, dusty tannins, cinnamon, vanilla, caramel, toast, Ladera managed a nice wine in a difficult vintage.

Excellent now. Deep ruby color. Red berries and cherry with mild oak and moderate tannins. Wow

2012 was a great year and this is a great cab in the Napa Style. Cherry and anise. Not too dry. Lovely
