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 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Lamb Vineyard is a dark, brooding wine that shows the more muscular, virile side of Calistoga. Ripe black cherry, spice, lavender, licorice, scorched earth and menthol all add nuance to this rich, powerful Cabernet Sauvignon. A brooding, dark wine, the 2017 is going to need time to come together. This is such a gorgeous wine, but readers will have to be patient. The 2017 is a deep, explosive wine of great character and pedigree that needs time to be at its very best, even if it is incredibly impressive today.
