Ladera, Lone Canyon Vineyard Cabernet, 2001

October 27, 2008

~$45US, 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, Lone Canyon Vineyard, Napa Valley

Midnight Black Ink.

Of all the wines to spill on the wool rug…

In any case, what was left in the bottle was extremely sturdy (eek Infanticide!) – A tannic beast that evolved very slowly over 7 days to reveal bunches of cherries, plums and leather. Mountain fruit indeed.

For me, this was more of a curiousity at this point – I had no idea what to expect, and I cannot imagine where this will go, and how long it will take to get there – but don’t drink it around toddlers and/or furniture.
