Winemaker Notes

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 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 on April 12, 1999 is one of our all-time great vintages. The date of the 1999 harvest? October 12.

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.

While Sonoma County is acclaimed—and rightfully so—for its Chardonnays, Pinot Noirs, and Zinfandels, it also produces exceptional Cabernet Sauvignon. Of the region’s 18 American Viticultural Areas, only a handful produce top-notch Cabernet Sauvignon. These appellations include Alexander Valley, Knights Valley, Sonoma Valley and Dry Creek Valley. Sonoma Cabernet Sauvignons made in these appellations can offer a complex array of aromas and flavors. Fruit notes such as blackberry, blackcurrant, cassis, black cherry and raspberry often are accompanied by hints of graphite, dusty earth, cigar box, toast and vanilla. The varietal has a rich history in Sonoma, and some of these Cabernet Sauvignons and Cabernet-based blends rival the best from Napa Valley.
