2010 Karl Lawrence Cabernet Sauvignon $59.99
The 2010 Karl Lawrence Cabernet leaps forward with incredible and expressive Cabernet characters. It has rich, deep, and dense dark fruits of black cherry, black raspberry, and plum. The fruit aromas are laced with dusty, bittersweet cocoa powder and hints of black licorice and cedar. The flavors are plentiful and bold enough to match the generous aromas. A firm, well-structured Cabernet with lots of richness and complexity throughout the body and core, then give way to a long, lingering, delicious finish. Apparent, yet very well integrated fine tannin perfectly knit this Cabernet together and will support it for wonderful aging in the bottle. Time will only improve this 2010 Karl Lawrence Cabernet.
The Karl Lawrence Cabernet Sauvignon is made with fruit from the Morosoli and the Lamb Family vineyards. The grape combination produces a wine that is rich and full-bodied, well balanced, and enhanced fruit and spice characters.
2009 Karl Lawrence Dr Crane Reserve $127.99
Forward, dark cherry and plum fruit aromas come forth along the signature hints of dusty cocoa powder and spice that the Dr. Crane Cabernet's always have. This wine opens up amply as it swirls in the glass.
Rich, with dark fruits, all held with some fine grain, yet subtle tannin. A bittersweet bakers chocolate flavor comes in on top of the plentiful dark fruit of black cherry and blackberry. Structure is steady, but smooth, leading to a long, lingering finish. This 2009 is still youthful on release, but from experience, will evolve into a sexy, rich Cabernet that is very rich, smooth, and generous.

2009 Karl Lawrence Gary Morisoli Reserve $127.99
Generous aromas of black currant and cherry along with hints of cedar and coffee. Bright and uplifting on the aromatics. Shows the subtle, earthy, and dusty notes famous from the Rutherford appellation known as "Rutherford Dust".
Big and full! Shows a bit of firmness and sturdy structure now, but with time this wine will mellow to carry it beautifully into the future. Good, black fruit expressions which are well backed with perfect structure and balance. Allowed to open up, dusty chocolate notes rise to add to the complexity of the overall wine. The 2009 Gary Morisoli Vineyard Reserve is suitably stuffed and will only improve with more time in the bottle. Patience will be rewarded!

2009 Karl Lawrence To Kalon Reserve $127.99
Deep, dense, rich aromatics of plush, black cherry and currant with added notes of violet and ripe plum. Forward with a nice spiciness and fruit, pushing to show off, but with ingenue restraint.
At first sip, the wine comes onto the palate with a reserved approach, but promptly expands into a bold, powerful Cabernet Sauvignon wine. Loaded with lots of dark fruit of black cherry and currant along with dark chocolate flavor and hints of spice that are almost too packed together making this wine needing time to relax to show off even more. With that time to open, this wine broadens and richens. To Kalon is a big, bold wine, but not at all overpowering when just opened.
