A quintessential Napa Cabernet Sauvignon with a bit of finesse.
Fuller bodied yet smooth; nicely balanced, and a little bit silky. Aromas of ripe cassis and dried cherries, with a hint of graphite and subtle cigar box notes. Flavors of cherry vanilla, sweet black cherry, leather and light allspice followed again by cassis. The finish is long and the wine responds very well to decanting and develops right in the glass. Restraint in the oaking allows the Laely to be enjoyed in it’s youth, but it will age well for at least a decade.
