Winemaker's Notes:

2009 Laurel Glen Counterpoint displays aromas of cherry, red currant, caramel, mineral and earth. The wine is supple and finely textured, with layers of mocha, ripe cherry, tobacco and truffle. Smooth, elegant, fresh and vibrant, this wine over-delivers.

About Laurel Glen Vineyards:

Laurel Glen Vineyard, a thousand feet up the slopes of Sonoma Mountain, has long been considered one of the iconic Cabernet vineyards of California. Originally planted in the 1880’s, the present-day vineyard was developed in the 1970’s by Sonoma wine pioneer Patrick Campbell. The 1st vintage of Laurel Glen Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon was made in 1981. The vineyard’s combination of high altitude, eastern exposure, rocky soils, and small diurnal temperature swings combine to produce very distinctive wines. Despite its small production, the wine has received international acclaim for its exceptional balance, elegance and ability to age gracefully.
