The Herb Lamb Cabernet tastes like no other wine we have ever made. This shows its terroir perhaps more clearly than any other Cabernet from 2014. On the nose there is copious cassis, dark chocolate and unique to this site some hints of bay leaf. The palate is quite dense and rich but seems to be reaching back to an old world profile more so than the rest of the Cabernets. This exhibits more of the dusty/earthy side of Cabernet with hints of charcoal, lavender and bitter sweet chocolate. A beautiful and truly unique expression of Cabernet.

This shows such refinement and sexiness at the same time. Full body, ultra-fine tannins and incredible length. A wine to age for a long time but why wait? Balance and harmony says it all.

The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Herb Lamb Vineyard comes from the lower hillsides of Howell Mountain. Tor Kenward uses the middle section of this vineyard that was earlier used by Ann Colgin for her Herb Lamb bottlings. This wine has always been noted by its blueberry component, touch of licorice and underbrush. This wine has all of that, medium to full body, beautiful acidity and loads of fruit. It is drinking well now and should continue to do so for 15-20 or more years.
