Winemaker's Notes

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.

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