NAPA VALLEY

Lamb Vineyard, Cabernet Sauvignon

Nestled at the foot of the Palisades Mountains in northern Napa Valley, the Lamb Vineyard has been a source of great pride for our family over the past quarter of a century. Named for Juelle's family (she is the daughter of Dr. Robert H. Lamb), the vineyard was planted to Cabernet in 1982 and consistently yields small quantities of fruit that produce wine with a rare combination of rich concentrated flavors, velvet texture and elegance (read more about the vineyard).

Tasting Notes

The fabulous 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon Lamb Vineyard exhibits an inky/purple color as well as a gorgeous perfume of scorched earth, graphite, chocolate, blackberries, cassis, and minerals. Dense, full-bodied, and heady, but tannic and structured, this masculine Cabernet needs 4-5 years of cellaring, and should keep for two decades. - Robert Parker (93 points)
