Lamb Vineyard

Lamb Vineyard

Nestled at the foot of the Palisades in Northern Napa Valley, the 10 acre Lamb Vineyard has been a source of great pride for our family over the past four decades. Named for Juelle's family, the vineyard was planted to Cabernet in 1976 and consistently yields small quantities of fruit that produce wine with a rare combination of rich concentrated flavors, velvet texture and elegance.

An absolutely brilliant wine is the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Lamb Vineyard, which comes from their five-acre parcel in northeast Napa Valley. Notes of blackberry and blackcurrant fruit interwoven with chocolate, wet stones and smoky barbecue notes are followed by an opulent, full-bodied, gorgeously proportioned and pure wine, with loads of character and richness. It should drink well for up to 20 or more years.
