Wine of the week: Top five Sonoma County wines of 2016 to try

Laurel Glen Counterpoint, 2014 Sonoma Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon, 14.4%, $40. ★★★★: This is a cab that has great structure, firm tannins and yet it manages to be fleshy. Juicy raspberry fruit with cassis, anise and cracked black pepper in the mix. It’s a steal at this price point for the quality.

Randall Watkins is the winemaker of Laurel Glen’s Counterpoint, 2014 Sonoma Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon at $40. “Savory” is a key component of the label’s house style.

Watkins said: “Classic cabernet sauvignon has both ripe fruit and a brilliant savory side."

Wine Enthusiast Best of Year 2016 

93 Laurel Glen 2014 Counterpoint Cabernet Sauvignon (Sonoma Mountain). Blended with 10% Merlot, this wine sources grapes both from its famous estate, as well as from nearby Pickberry and Murray vineyards. It delights in luxuriously bright acidity and a jammy explosion of blackberry, chocolate, clove and tobacco, the texture roundly approachable. - V.B.
