Laurel Glen Vineyard
WINEMAKER: Randall Watkins
A thousand feet up the slopes of Sonoma Mountain, Laurel Glen Vineyard was planted in the 1960’s and has long been considered one of the iconic Cabernet vineyards of California. The Certified Organic 14 acre vineyard is exclusively planted to the Laurel Glen clone of Cabernet Sauvignon. As the fifth generation of her family in the wine business, Bettina Sichel brings a vast knowledge and deep passion for her Cabernets.
We are grateful to be able to share these uniquely Sonoma Cabernet Sauvignons from a team committed to the long term health of the land and the vines.
2016 Counterpoint Cabernet Sauvignon
This wine comes from three separate Sonoma Mountain vineyards and is based on 80% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% each of Merlot and Malbec, raised in 30% new French oak. Lots of red currants, black cherries, dried flowers, bouquet garni, and tobacco leaf notes all flow to a medium to full-bodied, rounded, beautiful wine that has upfront appeal yet the balance and class to evolve for 15+ years.
2015 Cabernet Sauvignon
A deliciously complete wine! Now Certified Organic, these regal Cabernets offer beautiful minerality that are medium to full-bodied with the elegance of where the fruit is grown.
