    Winemaker's Notes:

    2009 Laurel Glen Counterpoint displays aromas of cherry, red currant, caramel, mineral and earth. The wine is supple and finely textured, with layers of mocha, ripe cherry, tobacco and truffle. Smooth, elegant, fresh and vibrant, this wine over-delivers.

    Critical Acclaim:

    This Sonoma Mountain winery changed hands in 2011. This garnet-purple beauty, the first effort from winemaking team Randall Watkins and consultant David Ramey, offers up dry – and not especially round – tannins and minerality. The palate opens up to a spreading brownie cake melt away effect along the tongue. At its very core is sagebrush and tobacco, a dollop of white pepper dots the juicy red cherry along the earthy pat. Power and beauty play together in counterpoint.

    This is made from the winery's estate vineyard, but from lots not included in the main blend, which costs twice as much. You'll find plenty of tannins in this darkly colored, impressively concentrated 100% Cabernet. It's fresh, soft and juicy in blackberry and cherry jam flavors, with a rich earthiness. Editors' Choice.
