Winemaker Notes

Blended from the vineyard lots with the most complexity, density and promise of age-ability to create a wine that displays an expressive bouquet of red cherries and blackberries, a velvety mid-palate and a spine of minerality.

RP 95
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is a small cuvée of only 1,006 cases harvested October 6-15, 2012. The wine was aged in 50% new French oak. The history of the site is ancient, with vines having first been planted in the 1880s. Beautiful blueberry and blackberry fruit jump from the glass of this dense ruby/purple wine. Full-bodied and ripe with sweet tannin, terrific lushness and beautiful purity and density, this is a super-strong effort from Laurel Glen. Drink it over the next 20-25 years.
W&S 93
Wine & Spirits
This is the second vintage of Laurel Glen made under the watch of the estate’s new proprietor, Bettina Sichel, who purchased the vineyard from longtime owner Patrick Campbell. The estate’s cool northern exposure, volcanic mountain soils and unique heritage selection of cabernet sauvignon combined to grow a 2012 with a compelling sense of balance and proportion. It feels gently ripened, fulsome and rich without sacrificing freshness, lasting on a supple saturation inflected with aromas of cassis and forest floor. It should be in perfect form after ten years in the cellar.
WE 91
Wine Enthusiast
This wine is 100% varietal and entirely estate, from vines planted beginning in 1968. Brick and tar rise from the nose, followed by polished, luxurious waves of black-cherry compote and boysenberry. Smoothly textured and ringed in minerality, it's well integrated and balanced, despite a full body and length.
WS 90
Wine Spectator
Strikes a nice balance between intense fruit, structured tannins and a charming rustic edge, showing a savory crushed rock earthiness. Ends with a burst of blackberry and currant. Drink now through 2028. 900 cases made.

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.
