In music ‘counterpoint’ is the relationship between voices that are harmonically interdependent yet independent in rhythm and contour. There is no word that we could find that could better express the relationship between this wine and our flagship Laurel Glen Vineyard Estate Cabernet Sauvignon. Following the contours of the distinctive Sonoma Mountain appellation, we were able to bring together Cabernet Sauvignon from Laurel Glen Vineyard and Merlot from Pickberry Vineyards to create a unique voice that expresses itself greater than the sum of its parts. The challenge was to find Sonoma Mountain fruit selections that were complex enough to engage, and yet seductively approachable. We are pleased to have accomplished this.
Laurel Glen Counterpoint Cabernet Sauvignon beautifully reflects the pedigree synonymous with Laurel Glen Vineyard, while establishing itself as uniquely harmonious and stylish. For the astute buyer this wine will dress up for a special occasion and at the same time remain a dependable value that you can share (or not) in full confidence that pleasure will result from every bottle opened.
Laurel Glen has turned out a fabulous 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Counterpoint, which can be thought of as the second wine of the estate and 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.
