Deep, fragrant aromas explode from the glass exhibiting notes of blackberry and blueberry extract highlighted by cinnamon and nutmeg spice. Powerful yet elegant, the flavorful palate displays ripe flavors of plum, blackberry and black cherry supported by structured tannins and refreshing acidity.
The 2014 Ladera Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon reveals a deep, garnet color with an intense bouquet of ripe blackberry, maraschino liqueur and charred wood.

Upon release, decant this beauty before serving to unlock all it has to offer. Best from 2020-2030.
