Proprietor Patrick Campbell's superb Cabernet Sauvignon vineyard on the slopes overlooking the Sonoma Valley has proven to be one of the finest sources for Cabernet in California. The use of traditional winemaking techniques designed not to strip the wine results in a wine that is full of character.The 1991 Cabernet Sauvignon reveals an opaque dark ruby color as well as a huge nose with aromas reminiscent of leg of lamb cooked over a wood fire and doused with Provencal herbs. The gorgeous big meaty herbaceous sweet black fruit aromas and flavors are followed by super-ripe rich luxurious flavors. There is plenty of tannin to provide the framework and the result is one of the most impressive wines I have yet to taste from this superb estate.

Patrick Campbell prefers his 1992 to his 1991 (which hailed from a cooler growing season and longer hang time), but I have a very slight preference for his quite classically-styled ’91.

Patrick Campbell prefers his 1992 to his 1991 (which hailed from a cooler growing season and longer hang time), but I have a very slight preference for his quite classically-styled ’91. The bouquet of the 1991 Laurel Glen is deep, complex and offers up lovely secondary elements in its mélange of desiccated cherries, roasted venison, cigar ash, a touch of chipotle pepper, gentle herb tones and a lovely base of soil. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and a bit broader-shouldered than the 1992, with a fine core of fruit (though again, the 1992 is perhaps just a touch deeper), excellent focus and balance, bright acids and excellent length and grip on the complex and moderately tannic finish. This is drinking beautifully now, but has only just reached its plateau of maturity and will continue to cruise along for decades to come. If I only had a few bottles in the cellar of this wine, I would hold off opening them and let the wine blossom even more fully. 2011-2035+. 92+
