Up high, above the fog, tucked away near the top of Sonoma Mountain is a hidden gem of a vineyard growing iconic Cabernet Sauvignon. The lineage of this vineyard dates back over 100 years. A remarkable detail to note as you taste this wine is that it was made of 100% free run juice, a winemaking approach rarely used for red wines, but one that produces balanced and elegant Cabernet Sauvignon.
“Beautifully dense deep purple color, and a classic cassis nose with notes of black pepper, cherry liqueur, rose petal and vanilla make for a very refined and seductive first impression. On the palate the flavor is mouth filling but nuanced, with a pleasant astringency. The tannins are fine and the finish is quite refreshing, yet long and multi-layered, beginning with black currant and ending with red cherry and pepper. It is already destined to be one of the better wines from this historic vineyard." ~Larry Stone, Master Sommelier

The longevity of Laurel Glen Vineyard Cabernet was demonstrated at a tasting in February 2011 comprising vintages between 1981 and 2007. Three vintages from the 1980's were voted among the top ten by the 7 prominent sommeliers and 3 experienced wine writers present. Master Sommelier Larry Stone wrote, "from the very beginning to the present day, all the wines show complexity, longevity and classical proportions."
