2014 Laurel Glen 'Lot 46' Cabernet Sauvignon
The Lot Series is an homage to the Laurel Glen Vineyard Cabernets of the mid-1980’s and 1990’s. Our aim here is a wine that will taste, in a couple of decades, the way the 1988 Laurel Glen Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon does today.
Laurel Glen Vineyard Lot 46 Cabernet Sauvignon is selected from just 6 barrels that met our stringent criteria for structure and complexity. Each vintage is unique and thus only 2014 will be called Lot 46, commemorating the 46th year since Cabernet Sauvignon was first planted at Laurel Glen Vineyard.
From RobertParker.com: "Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Lot 46 has a seriously intense, wonderfully earthy nose of tilled soil, mossy bark, truffles and iron ore over a core of sweaty leather, smoked meats, black olives, crème de cassis and preserved plums. Medium to full-bodied, the palate has a very firm frame of chewy tannins and lively acid with tons of earthy layers and a long, grippy finish. The style is a bit rustic, but it has bags of personality. 150 cases produced." 93+ Points
