"Very large scaled aroma billows out of the glass with inviting red berry liqueur, roasted chestnuts and marzipan. Palate flavors are well knit, giving immediate pleasure. The dark, silky raspberry fruit drinks seamlessly from first sip to finish with an echo of iron, clay minerality." —winemaker

Wine Anthology review:
Laurel Glen's flagship Cab is 100% Cabernet from all estate-grown fruit. With a burst of blackberry and licorice aromas that reveal a rich earthy side, this aromatic 2012 is a stunner right off the bat. It shows off gorgeous balance with a smoky edge from aging in 50% new French oak. Full-bodied and densely layered, California's phenomenal 2012 vintage is on full display in this wonderfully elegant showing from Laurel Glen.
"The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is a small cuvée of only 1,006 cases harvested October 6-15, 2012. The wine was aged in 50% new French oak. The history of the site is ancient, with vines having first been planted in the 1880s. Beautiful blueberry and blackberry fruit jump from the glass of this dense ruby/purple wine. Full-bodied and ripe with sweet tannin, terrific lushness and beautiful purity and density, this is a super-strong effort from Laurel Glen. Drink it over the next 20-25 years." —Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
