This 1985 is the first vintage that Sonoma Mountain was awarded an AVA status.

Originally planted to mixed red varietals by German immigrants at the end of the 19th century, Laurel Glen vineyard was replanted to Cabernet Sauvignon in 1968 by Carmen Taylor on the eve of a modern proliferation of vineyards in California. The grapes were sold for several years to Chateau St. Jean and at one time provided the backbone of Kenwood's Artist Series. In 1977, Ms. Taylor sold the property to Patrick Campbell, who took cuttings from the existing three acres of Cabernet vines to develop the modern vineyard.

Today, our 14 acre estate is farmed organically and planted entirely to Cabernet Sauvignon, and in particular the Laurel Glen clone of Cabernet Sauvignon, certified as a unique clone by the University of California at Davis.
