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.

Expert Reviews

87 Points | International Wine Cellar , May/June 2006

($30) Red-ruby. Coolish aromas of black raspberry, black cherry, leather and mint, plus a faint dusty quality. Fairly dense and sweet, but the black plum flavor shows a slightly green, tart edge and the leathery element is a bit intrusive. Doesn't have quite the strength and ripeness of material of the 2002 version of this bottling.

This Counterpoint reminded me of the great 1980's Laurel Glen Estate wines. Subtle, fresh, balanced, and great acidity. This is an old world wine that has great nuances of cassis, blackberry, and plum. You also get those moutain herbs. Fantastic!

About California

Powerful consumer interest in California wine is driven by two major factors. The more obvious reason is that California's best wines, which come from grapes grown in...

Cabernet Sauvignon

Cabernet Sauvignon built its reputation on Bordeaux's Left Bank. Here, in the district of Medoc, the varietal is the key component of blended wines that also may include some Merlot and Cabernet Franc, and even Malbec and Petit Verdot. Moving slightly south, Cabernet Sauvignon meets Merlot in roughly equal proportions in the red wines of Graves. In both of these Bordeaux regions, the top bottles...
