Winemaker Notes

"This blend of Zinfandel, Carignane and Petite Sirah tastes like one of those regional wines you discovered on vacation. You remember the sweet cherries, how dry it was, and how perfect with that chicken cacciatore. Shows up the promise of Lodi."
-Wine Enthusiast

The 2002 REDS is huge, and in any other year, it would have qualified for !ZaZin. It's intensely purple-black, exploding with aromas of exotic spices, black fruits, minerality, cocoa bean, ultra-ripe berries, and is decadently luscious. Not exactly the Laurel Glen house style, but that's what the vintage produced, so that's what we made, and I've got to say that this confirmed cabernet drinker has indulged in a number of bottles over the past several months when well spiced foods appear on the table and has enjoyed every one to the last drop!

Like the recently released 2001 Counterpoint, the 2002 REDS has an overlay of suavity and opulence that complements its deep, dark, almost rustic core. This is not accidental. We have made tremendous efforts to refine our projects on Sonoma Mountain, Mendoza, and Lodi. All REDS vineyards are under our control: we carefully monitor irrigation, crop levels, and harvest conditions. In the winery, we ferment in small batches, which preserves the integrity of the vineyards, and age the wines in 60 gallon oak barrels. Quantities produced are significantly lower than in previous years in keeping with our increasing commitment to quality.

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.

A major force on the global playing field, California is the world’s fourth largest wine-producing region on the planet and the majority of land under vine here is devoted to red varieties, covering nearly double the vineyard acreage of whites.

While the state’s incredibly diverse terrain and microclimates allow for countless red wine styles, the one factor unifying all California red wine is the abundance of sunshine and a long, consistent growing season, which leads to well-developed and fully ripened fruit.

The most famous region today, of course, is the acclaimed Napa Valley, where Cabernet Sauvignon reigns as king.

Sonoma County, nestled between Napa Valley and the Pacific Ocean, claims great variability in geography and microclimates. Here world-class Pinot Noir is possible from Sonoma’s cooler sites while old, gnarly Zinfandel vines survived Prohibition.

The Central Coast, Lodi and the Sierra Foothills also excel in the production of Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon and remain active frontiers for newer varieties, namely Rhône and Spanish.

The cool Anderson Valley in California’s North Coast region is a fantastic source of Pinot noir.
