2012 Laurel Glen Lot 44
Beginning with the 2012 vintage, we set out to make a wine that will have the depth and balance to reward extended cellaring and in 30 years will taste the way the 1986 Laurel Glen Vineyard Cabernet does today. We selected the most structured barrels of Cabernet harvested from Laurel Glen Vineyard. In 2012, 8 barrels met our criteria. Each vintage will be unique and thus only 2012 will be called Lot 44. Robert Parker awarded the wine 94+ points: "It is full-bodied, opulent, savory and multidimensional. Another terrific and youthful but promising wine, it should evolve for at least two decades."
