Tasting NotesHillside Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon with strong mineral expression from the volcanic ash soils. 2012 was a large and healthy crop across Napa. This vintage is deep in color with a dark rose hue in the glass. Fresh ripe fruits on the nose compliment a rich mouthfeel with fine-grained tannins. Intense yet balanced, juicy with the minerality typical of the White Rock terroir. This vintage of Laureate is ready to drink immediately (and will age gracefully for 10-15 years).
