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.

($30) Bright ruby-red. Aromas of red berries, tobacco, mocha and smoky minerals, with suave notes of spicecake and rose adding complexity. Juicy, penetrating red fruit flavors become sweeter in the mid-palate and repeat the floral note. There's good minerality here, which adds a nervy underpinning, but the fruit is to the fore right now. Finishes with good juicy cling and echoes of rose and cherry. The wine's sneaky tannins bode well for aging.
