2016 Laurel Glen Vineyard 'Lot 48' Cabernet Sauvignon
Laurel Glen Vineyard Lot 48 Cabernet Sauvignon is selected from just 6 barrels that met our stringent criteria for structure and complexity. Each vintage is unique and thus only 2016 will be called Lot 48, commemorating the 48th year since Cabernet Sauvignon was first planted at Laurel Glen Vineyard.
The Lot Series is an homage to the Laurel Glen Vineyard Cabernets of the mid-1980’s and 1990’s, a time when California stopped trying to imitate Bordeaux and concentrated on developing a unique personality. Each year we select six to eight barrels from the barrels that have been chosen to become our flagship Estate Cabernet Sauvignon. We are looking for the barrels with the most rugged and rustic personality to become this wine.
