"Laurea is a new "second" wine making its debut this year. In the spirit of the former Araujo Estate Altagracia label, Jaime Araujo (daughter of Bart and Daphne) said, "This is not just a kitchen-sink second wine. We choose wines that are still gorgeous, but just a little more up front, juicier and fruity to go into this blend." The 2018 Laurea is a blend of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot. It absolutely shines with red currant jelly, Morello cherries and black raspberry scents plus hints of dried mint and unsmoked cigars. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is taut yet plush with an approachable structure and tons of crunchy fruit, finishing with a compelling lift. 645 cases were made." - Lisa Perrotti-Brown, robertparker.com (Jan 14, 2021)
