92 Points from Jeb Dunnuck: "Laurel Glen has turned out a fabulous 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Counterpoint, which can be thought of as the second wine of the estate and comes from three separate Sonoma Mountain vineyards and is based on 80% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% each of Merlot and Malbec, raised in 30% new French oak. Lots of red currants, black cherries, dried flowers, bouquet garni, and tobacco leaf notes all flow to a medium to fullbodied, rounded, beautiful wine that has upfront appeal yet the balance and class to evolve for 15+ years."

88 Points from "The medium to deep ruby-purple colored 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Counterpoint has a pretty nose of blackberry pie and black cherry preserves with accents of dried roses, cocoa, cedar and fresh tobacco leaf plus notes of cassis, crushed stone and Morello cherries. Medium to full-bodied, it has a grainy frame and good freshness . . ."

Winemaker Notes
"The 2016 Laurel Glen Counterpoint bursts with aromas of boysenberry, strawberry, rhubarb, caramel, and sandalwood. Supple and finely textured, the wine has great freshness and depth, juicy acidity and tannins that are both firm and velvety." - Randall Watkins, Winemaker
