Laurel Glen Counterpoint Cabernet Sauvignon 2009
External Reviews for Laurel Glen Counterpoint Cabernet Sauvignon
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. Just delightful for drinking over the next four years, and a great value.
Laurel Glen’s 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Counterpoint is an attractive, juicy wine with good near-term appeal. Juicy, expressive and radiant, the 2009 wraps around the palate with dark red cherries, plums, sweet spices and flowers. I would prefer to drink the 2009 over the next few years, while the fruit retains its vibrancy. Anticipated maturity: 2013–2017.
Exhibiting dried berry, cedar, anise and sage flavors, this red is well-proportioned in a modest, restrained and appealing style. Drink now through 2019.
