Food Pairings for Laurel Glen Red Blend California Reds
Definitely dark and spicy...I really enjoyed this bottle of wine.
Year in, year out a delicious blend. My 'house red'. If only all winemakers paid this much attention to their 'lesser' wine. My hat's off to Patrick Campbell, who adds value by cutting out middlemen, not cutting corners.
External Reviews for Laurel Glen Red Blend California Reds
Red wine - 2008 - Laurel Glen Reds - USA - Region: California - Apellation: Sonoma - Caubernet Sauvignon - 750 ml.
This is a dark reddish-purple wine, almost black at the center. Fresh, fruit-centered aromas of red and black plums, cherries and berries add a warm note of spice. Full, ripe and juicy fruit flavors are well structured by fresh-fruit acidity.
The 2006 REDS is delicious, spicy, and rich with zinfandel providing dark raspberry fruit, carignane adding an exotic tang of white pepper, while the petite syrah tones down the tendency of zinfandel to become too jammy and pulls the whole blend
An old-fashioned field blended-style wine, Reds is almost always a dependably complex, satisying sipper at a fair price. This year?s release is soft and dry, with well-balanced fruit and earth flavors that will go nicely with a good steak or grilled
Always eagerly awaited, in this difficult year Patrick Campbell has crafted a light wine, but one no less harmonious and enjoyable. Right now oak dominates a rather earthy, closed nose, but there's a dense, chewy core of essential blackberry fruit that bodies well for the future. Try aging until 2005.
Deep ruby. Pungent, mineral-accented cherry and cassis aromas, with herb and espresso accents. Ripe dark fruit flavors are complicated by iron and sassafras, with a deeper, earthier quality coming on with air. A brooding, deeply concentrated wine, with impressive power and lingering notes of dark cherry and candied licorice. Give this some air.
Solid, chunky and firm, with pretty black cherry, wild berry, plum and raspberry flavors, finishing with tight, chewy tannins. Best from 2002 through 2009.
