A consignor from BC who started collecting about 15 years ago after becoming interested in wine on his first trip to Italy. Winery tours and dinners with the actual producers, owners and winemakers inspired him. Since that first trip to Italy, he and his wife have travelled extensively throughout the world’s major wine regions and have purchased wines and sent them back home to Canada. His wife currently operates her own business in the wine/liquor industry providing him with greater access to some wines. This, along with Futures Programs and a few favourite wine retailers in Alberta and BC is where he sources his wine from.The wine has been stored in a temperature controlled custom home cellar before coming to Iron Gate for auction.
The wine in this lot has following tasting note from Robert Parke -Producer notes- Howell Mountain was Napa’s first sub-AVA, and for good reason. The terroir is dramatic, unique and powerful. At between 1,600 and 1,800 feet in elevation, Ladera Vineyards sits above the Napa Valley fog, its grapes cooled instead by the high elevation. Longer, cooler but still very sunny ripening days and a deft hand in the cellar create the dynamic power found in their wine. Twenty acres were originally planted on this property in 1877. In 1886, a three-story stone building was erected. That building is used today as the Ladera winery. Ladera was founded by the Stotesbery family in 2000. Longtime ranchers in Montana, the family decided to move west and continue the passion they had for wine by producing it. We love their Cabernets, and from 2004 to about 2008 they produced Syrah.
