Was 2021 a good year for Laird Cabernet Sauvignon Napa ?

Every region of the Napa Valley enjoyed an outstanding harvest in 2021 for Laird Wines.

Why is Napa good for Laird Cabernet Sauvignon?

The Cabernet Sauvignon grape thrives in a warm, sunny climate that's not excessively hot, allowing for gradual ripening. Despite the overall warmth in many Californian regions, Napa Valley benefits uniquely from its proximity to the San Pablo Bay. This creates an induction effect at night, leading to morning cloud cover, which is ideal for these vines.

Is Napa Valley most famous for its Cabernet Sauvignon wines?

Cabernet Sauvignon is almost emblematic of Napa Valley, with its 18,200 acres of vineyards dedicated to this variety, accounting for 60 percent of the region's total wine production.
