2018 Laurel Glen Vineyard Estate Cabernet Sauvignon
Our flagship Cabernet Sauvignon: A complex, long lived and beautifully balanced expression of our organically farmed Sonoma Mountain Estate
94 points - Vinous: "The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon is bright, effusive and packed with energy . . . The purity of the flavors is just compelling. Black cherry, lavender, pine, menthol and dried herbs linger on the vibrant, salivating finish."
96 points - Wine & Spirits:
The mild weather allowed us to take our time and pick each block as it became optimally ripe. As a result, harvest lasted almost a month, from September 27 to October 22, 2018. Additionally, after three years of extremely small yields, we were blessed in 2018 with the most abundant harvest since 2014.
Once in barrel, the wines showed prodigious depth and incredible character that wonderfully displayed the benefits of slow, even ripening. Many winemakers are comparing 2018 to the much lauded 2012 vintage, due to the extended ripening time, fantastic balance and excellent concentration of the grapes.
