2016 Herb Lamb Estate Cabernet SauvignonUdsolgt
Although still considered a drought year, adequate spring rainfall in March and a cooler than average summer with very few spikes of heat gave the 2016 vintage in Napa Valley a chance to mature slowly and completely and hang on the vine until harvest at mid-October.
The balanced growing season gave us wines that are very expressive with lots of aromatics, juicier fruits and more intense flavors with bigger structure than other vintages.
The focus in the palate is of fresh juice, with a good weight in the middle and ideal acid balance with fine tannins completing the package.
The aromatics are remarkable and continue to develop in the bottle, with fruit that jumps out of the glass.
One of the best vintages that we have ever produced!!
