The Lot Series is an homage to the Laurel Glen Vineyard Cabernets of the 1990’s, a time when California stopped trying to imitate Bordeaux and concentrated on developing a unique personality. Each year Laurel Glen picks the six or so barrels with the most rugged and rustic personality to become this wine.
Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the Cabernet Sauvignon Lot 46 has a seriously intense, wonderfully earthy nose of tilled soil, mossy bark, truffles and iron ore over a core of sweaty leather, smoked meats, black olives, crème de cassis and preserved plums. Medium to full-bodied, the palate has a very firm frame of chewy tannins and lively acid with tons of earthy layers and a long, grippy finish. The style is a bit rustic, but it has bags of personality.
