Herb Lamb Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain 2015

Winemaker Michael Trujillo calls it ‘one of the most concentrated, opulent and expressive vintages we have ever produced.’ This wine radiates with the typical characters of the Herb Lamb terroir; sweet red and blue fruits, liquorice and crushed herbs, cassis and bakers’ chocolate. The 2015 HL Cabernet Sauvignon is big, bold, fruit forward and expressive. Layered and focused, this is a jewel of a wine to set aside for a few years.

2015 HL Cabernet Sauvignon
Winemaking Notes:
The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon vintage in Napa Valley was
exceptional, with the freshness of fruit of the 2014 and structure of
the 2013 and concentrated fruit from the extended drought. But the
smaller clusters from cooler weather at set resulted in highly
intensified flavors which gave the wine more structure.
Winemaker Michael Trujillo calls it “one of the most concentrated,
opulent and expressive vintages we have ever produced.” This wine
radiates with the typical characters of our terroir; sweet red and blue fruits in the nose, and
on the pallet licorice and crushed herbs, cassis, red currents, dried cherry, Bakers chocolate,
blueberries and black raspberries, with exceptional depth and structure.
The 2015 HL Cabernet Sauvignon is big, bold, fruit forward and expressive and is one of
the most masculine wines we have ever seen from the vineyard. It is layered and focused. A
jewel of a wine to set aside for a few years.
Vintage Notes:
The 2014 fall and 2015 winter extended the drought to a third year with only 1/3 of the
normal rainfall. With virtually no rain and warmer temperatures in January and March, we
experienced an unusually warm, frost-free spring and the warmer soil temperatures caused
the vines to bud out early and strong. But cooler weather in May during bloom caused
uneven fruit set, which, along with the prolonged drought, led to a drastically decreased
crop levels with reduced yields by 30-50% throughout the valley. Summer was dry and hot
with 20 days over 100 degrees, speeding up ripening to give us one of our earliest harvests
with reduced yields and smaller, concentrated berries.
