Laird Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley
Laird Family Estate
United States - California - Napa Valley

This 100% Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced from three vineyards: Mast Ranch, for its earthy and robust structure, Flat Rock Ranch, for its fruit-forward characteristic and silky tannins, and Linda Vista Ranch, for its juicy and vibrant approachability. The blending of these three vineyards has resulted in an elegant wine with a well-balanced structure.

Dark crimson ruby color with a slight purple hue introduces aromas of cherry preserves, crème brûlée and vanilla extract. This medium bodied red wine expresses flavors of black plum, dark chocolate, and ripe blueberries on the front of the palate, and is complemented by a sage brown butter and sturdy tannins on the finish. The long expressive finish would be complimented by a prime Filet Mignon or an ooey gooey brownie.

wa92"Deep purple-black colored, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley gives redcurrant jelly, black cherries, mulberries and bay leaves scents with wafts of damp soil, olives and truffles. The soft, medium-bodied palate gives bags of youthful fruit and an earthy finish. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown"

vinous logo"A rich, unctuous wine, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley) is sweet, layered and enveloping in feel. Dark cherry, plum, mocha, cloves and new leather are all fused together. This is an especially intense, flamboyant expression of the vintage."
