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.

The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Lamb Vineyard is a tiny production cuvée that includes 4% Petit Verdot and was brought up all in new French oak. It has incredible crème de cassis, crushed violets, lead pencil, and graphite aromatics, full body, a beautiful sense of elegance and purity, and ultra-fine tannins. This is a thrilling Cabernet, from a great vintage, that readers should snatch up. It will benefit from short term cellaring, and deep for two decades or more.
