Winemaker's Notes

The great vintages of Laurel Glen (1985, 86, 90, 92, 94, and 1999) have universally begun 180 days after the first sign of bud break. (the average day of bud break is March 21) I discovered this, while puzzling over the fact that despite its unusually late bud break onApril 12, 1999 is one of our all-time great vintages. The date of the 1999 harvest? October 12.

The 1999 Laurel Glen displays a typically dark rim and black, glass-staining, core; on the nose it's unusually open and perfumed, full with mulberries and intriguing tarry notes; in the mouth it's suave and elegant with a very long finish, rich but not cloying. Like all Laurel Glens, this is not an instant gratification wine: a few years' cellaring will serve to unfold its complexities.

The atmosphere of Sonoma is decidedly laid back and down home country style. But in wines, they are keeping up with the...

(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes. Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity. Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...
