ABOUT THE WINE:
This wine is a collaboration between two pioneering wineries of mountain-grown Cabernet Sauvignon, celebrating over 100 years of history between them, on opposite sides of Sonoma County. Laurel Glen Vineyard (planted in 1968) is located on Sonoma Mountain at a 1,000 ft elevation in far western Sonoma County; the Fisher Vineyards’ Mountain Estate (founded in 1973) is located at a 1,000 ft elevation, on the far eastern edge of Sonoma County. Between them, there are 360 degrees of estate grown, organically farmed and minimally handled mountain Cabernet Sauvignon.
This year marks the 50th anniversary of the founding of Fisher Vineyards while the Laurel Glen Vineyard Estate Cabernet Sauvignon celebrated its 40th vintage in 2021. Fisher Vineyards’ Mountain Estate yields wines that are a true reflection of place, show-casing beautiful dark fruits, savory qualities and structure that transcends time. The most complex, age worthy lot of Cabernet Sauvignon harvested from Laurel Glen’s organically certified estate vineyard was selected for this wine.
This extraordinary lot is a Cabernet of profound depth and savory nuance that synergizes opulent inky dark fruit characters with the classic structure and minerality of these unique mountain sites. This lot also makes history as the wineries’ first lot collaboration together, crafting a unique Never Before, Never Again wine for the 2023 Sonoma County Barrel Auction.
