Sonoma Mountain Cabernet and More
About Our Wines
Laurel Glen Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon is more refined than many California mountain Cabernets. A typical Laurel Glen Vineyard Estate Cabernet displays an inky ruby color, an expressive bouquet of red cherries and blackberries, a velvety mid-palette, and always a spine of minerality that keeps the sweet fruit in check. A typical Laurel Glen Counterpoint Cabernet displays great structure and firm tannins, yet also manages to be fleshy. The aromas of raspberry and cassis are balanced by savory notes and a bright acidity, making this a uniquely food-friendly cabernet. The Lot Series, a relatively recent addition to the Cabernet offerings from our estate vineyard on Sonoma Mountain, is the biggest boned wine of the portfolio. A typical Lot Series Cabernet Sauvignon has a very firm frame of chewy tannins and lively acid with a long, grippy finish. The style is more rustic with lots of personality.
