Winemaker's Notes:

The 2010 REDS is deeply colored, aromatic, and deep, but with a llift to the finish. This description mirrors the three traditional components of REDS: petite syrah, carignane, and zinfandel. Petite syrah is deeply colored – is there any other varietal which makes such a black wine? Carignane imparts a white pepper, minerally component, which is distinctly aromatic and shines through the fruitiness of zinfandel, which itself provides the backbone and depth of REDS.

This is a prettier wine than those of the past couple of years, and accordingly matches with a wider range of foods. While it will drink nicely with traditional REDS fare like pizza and burgers, the 2010 also goes great with milder cheeses and medium bodies pasta dishes.

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.
