Laurel Glen Vineyard, 2013 Laurel Glen Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma Mountain

"This is a bright, engaging and vibrant 100% varietal wine, lovely in currant, cranberry and a sanguine earthiness. The acidity is weaved throughout and entirely supportive, uplifting the fruit to greater heights of freshness and focus. Editors’ Choice. —V.B."

Laurel Glen Vineyard, 2013 Laurel Glen Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma Mountain

"Notes of coffee, pine forest, notes of iron and gunmetal, mixed sweet herbs and black fruits. More structure than mid-palate concentration here. Even so, this is a nicely delivered wine and has lots of length and palate-cleansing qualities to serve the table well. "

Laurel Glen Vineyard, 2013 Laurel Glen Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma Mountain

"This is formal, almost austere cabernet, with the same deep, black tannins that you find in many of the great 2013s from Napa Valley, just presented in a slightly cooler tone. At first, there’s a pretty, foresty scent and an impression of dark mineral structure dammed up behind a layer of French oak. Give it a day of air, and its savory flavors explode, saturating the senses with smoky, woodsy spice that feels connected to the rocky volcanic soil and forests of Sonoma Mountain rather than oak barrels. It’s massive yet refreshing, with floral detail in the end—a wine to keep in the cellar for at least a decade. (1,039 cases)"

VINTAGE REPORT "The 2013 Laurel Glen Vineyard Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is a beautiful illustration of the years of work we’ve put into elevating practices in the vineyard and winery. A mild winter led to an early bud break followed by ideal weather. Even though picking began about ten days earlier than in 2012, on September 25th, the early early bud break left plenty of time for flavor development. Yields at Laurel Glen Vineyard were lighter than average at about 2.4 tons per acre, but the quality of the fruit was exceptional. Justly lauded, the 2013 vintage yielded grapes with intense concentration and beautiful aromatics. "
