Staff Pick Notes

The Counterpoint Cabernet is easy to love and comes with an impressive pedigree from the renown Laurel Glen Winery in Sonoma. This stellar Cabernet shows juicy plum, raspberry and cassis flavors with fine tannins, making it an ideal pairing with burgers, braised short rib or BBQ. Fans of full-bodied red wines should take home a case to keep this on hand as their go-to house wine. Laurel Glen Winery has a long history in Sonoma since it was founded in 1977 by Patrick Campbell. After making award-winning wine for over 30 years, he retired and handed the reigns to Bettina Sichel who has upheld the respected reputation and made the transition to exclusively organic practices in the vineyard. Enjoy a bottle of the Counterpoint Cabernet today while you're waiting for a bottle of the Estate Cabernet to age in the cellar.

Today, Cabernet Sauvignon has a...
