Herb Lamb Vineyard, Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 

2003 Herb Lamb Vineyard, Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Aromas of ripe, dense, black fruits coupled with a strong blueberry essence and floral notes showcase the wonderful terroir of the Herb Lamb Vineyard.

Notes from the Estate:

"Proving once again that the Herb Lamb Vineyard site has something magical in the soils, we celebrate the twelfth vintage of this Cabernet Sauvignon. The vineyard has a unique northeast facing aspect which generally results in sunlight on the steep slopes from sunrise to early afternoon. In 2003 this was the last fruit we brought into our state-of-the-art winery and the long hang time resulted in a unique aromatic profile. The wine is deeply pitched red with a black center. With vibrant clarity and aromatics of black cherries and raspberries leading to earthy, terroir driven notes the profile moves to exotic spices and cured meats. The mouth feel is pure richness framed by ripe, supple tannins and a fine acid structure. As with all the wines from Colgin Cellars the Herb Lamb Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon was bottled without fining or filtration. The 2003 vintage will have early appeal to some with its density of color and rich textures and to the collector who wishes for continued development with its age worthy tannins and good structure. "

We released 210 cases of the 2003 "Herb Lamb Vineyard" Cabernet Sauvignon in November 2006.
