Laurel Glen Sonoma Mountain Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2002
from Sonoma County, California
"Classic Laurel Glen, a Cabernet stuffed with dense, thrillingly ripe fruit..."
Laurel Glen has built a reputation for making some of the most balanced and delicious Cabernets in California - this flagship wine from mountain grown fruit is a perfect example of how special these wines are.
The later growing season afforded a beautiful balance of acid, fruit, and tannins; in fact, the wine tastes unusually drinkable right now. The dark core extends to the rim of the glass in a firm, bright purple rim; the nose is dark and deep, with layers of ripe black berry and cassis tones below the distinctive Laurel Glen exotic spice top-notes. What is really atypical for
the vineyard is the immediately smooth and silky mouthfeel: normally, Laurel Glen wines need a couple of years to achieve this level of balance. This is a lovely wine right now, but I suspect time will allow it to blossom into a wine of greater profundity. Will we be able to wait?

Simply amazing. Bold taste and silky tannins. One of my favorite Cabs. Will be buying a case of it in the very near future.
