LAELY Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2018


LAELY Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

Inky purple in color with a beautiful nose of ripe cassis, followed by dried cherries, subtle cigar box and leather notes. The palate is very supple and rich with juicy wild cherry, dark chocolate, and light allspice followed again by layers and layers of black fruit. The fine grained tannins lead to beautiful complexity in the finish. The wine responds very well to decanting and develops right in the glass. Polished with no hard edges, this is a wine to cellar, or enjoy now

The search for the right vineyards to produce this wine led Laely Heron to two high elevation districts within the Napa Valley AVA, Howell Mountain and Atlas Peak. Fruit from the valley floor of Rutherford, combined with the high elevation fruit, lifts this wine to a level of elegant complexity. The wine is 90% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Oakville Petite Verdot.

Having studied enology in Bordeaux, Laely “cut her teeth” on French sensibilities and envisioned a wine with beautiful freshness and balanced richness. LAELY Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is a serious, multi-dimensional wine, with judicious use of oak.
