Wine Advocate: 95 Points

The 2017 Laurel is a blend of the younger vines some barrels that were declassified from Clos Erasmus and the remaining Cabernet Sauvignon and in the low-yielding and dry 2017 vintage it's 70% Garnacha 20% Syrah and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon with 15% alcohol. The wine fermented mostly in concrete and oak vats with indigenous yeasts and matured in a combination of oak vats concrete used barriques and amphorae for 16 months. They produce this to be approachable from the moment it's released. The 2017s feel very aromatic open expressive and young quite primary tender and juicy and surprisingly fresh for a dry warm year that resulted in a very early harvest. There is a peachy soft approachable quality here that I like very much. Surprisingly enough winemaker and proprietor Daphne Glorian sees reminiscences of the 2013s in the 2017s and I have to agree. Different from 2016 but at the same quality level. 19126 bottles were filled in May 2019.
