1989 Laurel Glen Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma Mountain
Cabernet Sauvignon: 750ml
Laurel Glen is divided into three regions:
Sonoma Mountain Estate Cabernet, California Heartland Reds, and
Argentine old vine cabernet and malbec from the province of Mendoza.
Each region is comprised of two wines: special lot selection and vineyard blend. Vineyards are sustainably farmed and winemaking is traditional and non-interventionist. All Laurel Glen wines reflect their vineyard origins, and are consciously made to favor depth and complexity over fruit-forward expression.
SONOMA MOUNTAIN ESTATE - Patrick and Faith Campbell began farming Laurel Glen in 1977. The vineyards, most of which were replanted in 1968, now encompass some 35 acres in 9 contiguous blocks on the red, rocky, volcanic eastern facing slopes of Sonoma Mountain at the 1000' elevation above Glen Ellen. Average yield in these sparse soils is 1.5 - 2.5 tons per acre. Farming is organic and meticulous. Laurel Glen and Counterpoint are 100% cabernet sauvignon.
CALIFORNIA HEARTLAND - In the latter part of the 1800s, the pioneer grape growers planted out the rich lands of California's interior to the traditional grapes of their homelands. Today, the region of Lodi, on the cooler and less fertile margin of the Valley near the Sacramento River delta, is still home to scores of these heritage vineyards that thrive in its sandy/gravelly soils. Here we farm carignane, petite syrah, and zinfandel vineyards for REDS and
MENDOZA - While Italian immigrants were planting out zinfandel to their Lodi vineyards in the late 1800s, a second wave of pioneers from Italy was laying out malbec vineyards in the gravelly, rocky soils at the base of the mighty Andes in Mendoza, and engineering the complex system of canals that even today direct snow melt to the sparse soils. Hundreds of hectares of close-planted, high altitude, and decades-old malbec vineyards yield small tonnages of intensely flavored and exotically perfumed wines. You can experience these black, spicy, and rich wines in Terra Rosa and Vale la Pena.
