What We're Drinking

 

So why is the 2012 Ladera Cabernet—made from almost entirely from Howell Mountain fruit, from an incredible vintage—sitting pretty at $34.99? I honestly can't tell you. Maybe it's because no one knows how good the Ladera holdings in Howell Mountain are. Or maybe it's the pride that winemaker Jade Barrett takes in making a serious wine for a reasonable price. Or maybe it's because Ladera is an overlooked gem in a sea of Napa alternatives. For whatever the reason, I'm not going to complain. We tasted the 2012 vintage at our staff training yesterday and I was just floored by the quality of this wine. Dark, fleshy fruit cloaked in fine tannins, bits of earth, and in total balance, with enough gusto to go the long haul in your cellar. It's a whole lotta wine for $34.99, and it's made primarily from Howell Mountain grapes, harvested during a great vintage.

K&L Blog Gets a New Look

Over the past six months, we've made some changes here at Uncorked, including more frequent updates and regular features like Wine of the Week (also known as Wine Wednesday in the Twitterverse) and Food Pairing Fridays. Plus video interviews, news and much more. Now we've got a brand new look, too, that's easier to navigate and kind to the eye. We're working on getting some contests lined up for 2011, as well as more videos and more posts about the things you like most: value-priced wines and beer. Check it out and let us know what you think! 

Happy New Year!

The K&L Team
