For Premiere Napa Valley, Ladera has created a blend of the finest blocks from each of our two mountain vineyards. Our home vineyard on Howell Mountain, part of the eastern Vaca range, is categorically different in nature than the Mayacama range on the east side. So this special offering contrasts the high rolling plateau of Howell Mountain at 1,800 feet in elevation with the steep and rugged vineyards of the western hills. These differences are exemplified in berry size, cluster count, tannin levels and darkness of the juice. And when combined, the result is bold, yet spicy and elegant. The gentlemanliness of Howell Mountain kicked up by the cowboy nature of the western hills. Truly a wine from Two Mountains.
Aged for 24 months in 50% new and the balance old, French oak barrels.
