Winemaker notes from Allison Tauziet:
"We couldn't be more thrilled that our final wine from the Herb Lamb Vineyard comes from such an outstanding vintage. In fact, the conditions in 2007 were absolutely ideal for this property. The long, moderate season gave us enough time to gently ripen the tannins, while still preserving the distinctive flavors that we come to expect from this vineyard.
The 2007 Herb Lamb vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon has an intense nose of licorice, chocolate mint and cassis. Nuances of forest floor and loamy earth bring terroir and character to the wine. On the palate, the tannins have a lovely coating quality, but are structured for long aging. The 2007 has perhaps the most silky tannins we've experienced at this stage in the wine's youth. Given the classic quality of the vintage, the wine will age for 20 to 30 years. We recommend a minimum of 5 years of cellaring to fully appreciate the wine."
We released 178 cases of the 2007 "Herb Lamb Vineyard" Cabernet Sauvignon in March 2011.
