The Ledson Winery is a gem in the Sonoma Valley AVA. We love this winery and visit it often…… resulting in lots of fantastic wines for our fridge!

Today we opened a 2013 Ledson Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Reserve from the Alexander Valley. This is not an everyday wine, we are celebrating, so we opened something special.

The color is a deep garnet and glows beautifully in the light. It has a subtle nose of wet earth, on the palate it is rich, smooth juicy fruit. The finish is tobacco and velvet. We made the right choice for our celebration, this wine was superb.




Cab time

Today we opened a Cabernet Sauvignon from Hook and Ladder Winery. The AVA is Russian River. Estate bottled from Los Amigos Ranch on Chalk Hill Rd. It is the reserve version or as this winery uniquely calls it ‘Third Alarm’.

The color is a deep garnet and so beautiful. The nose is rich plum and warm jam. On the palate it has bold fruit with a bit of spice. The finish is sexy and smooth. This wine deserves it’s alarm status as my husband and I raced to refill our glasses. Just loved this wine.
