Cabernet Sauvignon 'Napa Valley', Laely

Cabernet Sauvignon 'Napa Valley', Laely

This cuvée is a new wine by Laely Heron – years in the making. The search for the right vineyards to produce this elegant wine led her to several districts within the Napa Valley AVA: Howell Mountain, Rutherford, Atlas Peak and Oakville. The wine is 90% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Petite Verdot. Having studied winemaking in France, she envisioned a Bordeaux-inspired red. A wine that is serious without expressing one dimensional, over-the-top oak notes, but rather a balanced profile at release with an age worthy, yet approachable tannin structure.

Review:
Buzzing acidity adorns this otherwise powerfully full-bodied wine, made from a range of appellations, including Atlas Peak and Howell Mountain. Earthy dried herb, sage and cedar complement core of lengthy oak, tannin and structure.
