Winemaker Notes

Mother Nature both blessed and cursed us in 2015. The Cabernet Sauvignon fruit we harvested was of exceptional quality. We picked unusually tiny, intensely flavored berries. However, the quantity of the fruit was heart breaking. Our yield in 2015 was less than half of what we harvested in 2014.

Wine & Spirits
The 2015 is a floral celebration with earthiness driving its flavors. The fruit is ripened to the point of fatness, juicy black plum and tart-sweet blackberry flavors tasting bright and fresh . . . You'd be hard pressed to find many California cabernets of this quality for $50.

This is an approachable release from the mountain estate that is known for ageworthy Cabernet. Earthy and herbal, it offers clove, cedar and peppery notes. The structure is rounded and concentrated in balanced black fruit. Editors’ Choice

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Counterpoint gives up fragrant cassis, crushed plums and blueberry scents with hints of Chinese five spice, camphor and lilacs. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is filled with juicy black fruits, with a plush frame and oodles of freshness, finishing with a lively lift.

Jeb Dunnuck
The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Counterpoint is 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Merlot from a handful of sites in the Sonoma Mountains and spent 18 months in 30% new French and 10% new American oak. It offers more blue fruits, lots of pine and herbal notes, medium body, and a juicy, elegant style on the palate. It has nicely integrated acidity, terrific purity of fruit, and a seamlessness that has it already drinking nicely. It should keep for 10-12 years, although there's no harm in drinking this today.

Laurel Glen, California
Laurel Glen Winery Image
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.

Sonoma Mountain Wine

Sonoma Valley, California

Defined more by altitude than geographical outline, the Sonoma Mountain appellation occupies elevations between 400 and 1,200 feet on the northern and eastern slopes of the actual Sonoma Mountain and is part of the greater Sonoma Valley appellation. The mountain reaches 2,400 feet; its hills separate the cooling winds of Petaluma Gap from the Sonoma Valley.

On a cooler western flank, Pinot noir, Chardonnay and Syrah enjoy a great deal of success. Vineyards on its warmer, eastern side, interspersed with heavily forested areas, tend to include Cabernet Sauvignon, Sauvignon Blanc, Zinfandel, and Syrah. Given its complexity of topography and mesoclimates, Sonoma Mountain excels with a wide range of grape varieties.

A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon enjoys success all over the globe, its best examples showing potential to age beautifully for decades. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in Bordeaux's Medoc where it is often blended with Merlot and smaller amounts of some combination of Cabernet Franc, Malbecand Petit Verdot. In the Napa Valley, ‘Cab’ is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious, age-worthy and sought-after “cult” wines. Somm Secret—DNA profiling in 1997 revealed that Cabernet Sauvignon was born from a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc in 17th century southwest France.
