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.

89(+?) Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 1998
Very saturated deep red-ruby. Sappy aromas of black cherry, cola, licorice and maple syrup. Not particularly sweet but offers good ripeness for the year; initially a bit hard, but showed a pliancy with aeration, along with intriguing mineral and vegetal elements (Campbell calls the latter quality "advanced greenness," noting that it is a function of soil and site rather than underripeness.) Expands impressively on the back end.
