Decanter
Entirely estate fruit, certified organic since 2014. This is gorgeous, from grapes planted on an east-facing cool spot. There’s no question that the Californian sunshine still have an impact – the silky texture is striking and the overall body is rich and intense, but you are left with a feeling of lightness. Intense black cherry fruits, touches of anise and rosemary, a kick of smoke and salinity on the finish.

Wine Enthusiast
Earthy in forest, pine and mushroom, this wine is slightly reduced and youthfully concentrated. Lively acidity supports a strong tannic structure, with a sturdy toasted oak flavor matched by a mix of black and red currant. It shows potential for aging. Enjoy from 2024–2029. Cellar Selection

The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Laurel Glen Vineyard comes from a site in the Sonoma Mountain AVA and spent 22 months in 60% new French oak. Its deep purple/plum color is followed by a terrific perfume of cassis and blueberry fruit intermixed with lots of pine/forest floor, Asian spice, and graphite. Concentrated, with medium body, fine tannin, and bright acidity, it's a classic beauty that really needs 4-5 years of cellaring and is going to keep for 10-15.

One of Sonoma County's most iconic wines. The 2014 Laure Glen Vineyard Estate Cabernet exhibits superb complex flavors and satisfaction on the palate. The wine's claret-like style makes it a great match with lightly grilled filet mignon. ((Tasted: October 30, 2017, San Francisco, CA)

Laurel Glen, California

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.

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 separating 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. Inherently high in tannins and acidity, the best bottlings of Cabernet can age beautifully for decades. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in temperate climates like Bordeaux where it forms the base of the Medoc reds. These blends are typically mostly Cabernet with Merlot and smaller amounts of some combination of Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot. (Enjoying a great deal of success in various regions around the world, this blend is now globally referred to as a Bordeaux Blend.) Cabernet Sauvignon from the Napa Valley is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious, age-worthy and sought-after “cult” wines.

Tasting Notes for Cabernet Sauvignon

Cabernet Sauvignon is a dry red wine rich in color, tannin and extract. It expresses notes of blackberry, cassis, plum, currant, spice and tobacco. In the Old World you'll often find the more earthy side of Cabernet. In warmer regions like California, Washington, Argentina, Chile and Australia, you can typically expect more upfront fruit flavors.

Perfect Food Pairings for Cabernet Sauvignon

Cabernet Sauvignon is right at home with rich, intense meat dishes—beef, lamb and venison, in particular—where its opulent fruit and decisive tannins make an equal match to the dense protein of the meat. With a mature Cabernet, opt for tender, slow-cooked meat dishes.

Sommelier Secrets for Cabernet Sauvignon

Despite the modern importance and ubiquity of Cabernet Sauvignon, it is actually a relatively young variety. In 1997, DNA profiling revealed the grape to be a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc which took place in 17th century southwestern France.
