Very tannic, in the Laurel Glen way, this young wine's toughness is due to the estate vineyard's mountain terroir. In years past, Laurel Glen was a cult Cabernet. They perhaps dropped the ball for a while, but this wine stages a big comeback. It's rich and vital in black currant and mineral, with just the right touch of new oak, and it shows a sophistication not seen from the winery in years. And at this price, it's a bargain. Drink now–2021, as it gradually softens and sweetens.
