Laurel Glen Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma Mountain 1985

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

This is just classic California Cabernet at peak rich with ripe cassis fruit gentle edged in earthy tones with just a hint of ripe herbal notes adding complexity and an undercurrent of leather growing in the glass. Perfectly resolved in the mouth with fine balance and bright acids offer a counterpoint to the sweet red fruit, the core of fruit is just wonderfully ripe and rich and the juicy acids extend the medium long finish. Delicious! 93pts

This wine has consistently been an excellent performer. The fine Laurel Glen winery, which has made even better Cabernet Sauvignons during the decade of the nineties, fashioned a 1985 with plenty of jammy, sweet blackcurrant fruit, an element of smok...
