About Laurel Glen Vineyard
The precious 3-acre parcel that gave birth to Laurel Glen Vineyard was first planted by German immigrants back in 1880. But it was Patrick Campbell who rediscovered the plot in 1974 and set to work expanding the vineyard to its current size of 16 acres.

($50) Bright ruby. Reticent but complex nose combines minerals, licorice, leather, mocha and chocolate, with lovely floral lift. Suave and aromatic in the mouth, but extremely backward and dominated by its powerful acid/tannin structure today. Brooding flavor of inky blackcurrant shows superb penetration and snap. Finishes very long and firmly tannic. The pH here is 3.75, on the high side for Laurel Glen, and this 2002 may be the biggest wine yet from this winery. But this cabernet needs a good eight to ten years of cellaring.
