Lunch in Napa with Jennifer Lamb of Herb Lamb vineyard (Colgin bought original fruit here). Lunch...2011 to 2016 flight and more from her personal cellar to come:
1997 1st vintage in 3 liter (1 of 3 she ownes)
2007 herb lamb cab in magnum
2002 karl Lawrence herb lamb cab in 3 liter
1999 herb lamb cab in magnum
Note; Jennifer leased her vineyard to Thomas Rivers Brown(winemaker Schrader cellars). No more Herb Lamb vineyard cabernet after 2016 vintage. Great wine, get the last vintage if you can! — 3 months ago
This is a very expensive bottle and it pales against many of the wines I’ve had today. It’s not palate fatigue.
The fruit is nice, the balance, length, structure and tension are good. There is just no wow factor and there should be at this price point.
Blackberries, black cherries, strawberries, dark spice, crushed rocks, black licorice to anise, dry dark soil, volcanic minerals, dry herbs, mint-eucalyptus, bright red florals, good acidity with balance and polish on the long finish. — 3 months ago
