Tasting Notes - "The 2011 Ladera Howell Mountain Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon displays classic characteristics of cooler vintage conditions. Pure fruit expressions of wild berry, currants and ripe plum are highlighted with notes of cassis, cocoa and fresh oak spice. As the wine sits in the glass, it reveals an intriguing mineral element that adds to its appeal. The palate is pure and focused, layered with black fruits, sweet oak, supple tannins and great structure." 14.1% ABV.
