2014 Tor Herb Lamb Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml
Tasting Notes: "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." - Robert Parker (94 Points)
Winemaker's Notes: The 2014 Herb Lamb Vineyard Cabernet was fermented in a single closed top tank for about 20 days. The goal on this wine was not maximum extraction but rather to best express the singular profile of this historic vineyard. In order to achieve this, we did no more than two pump-overs a day and had a maximum fermentation temperature of 86 degrees. Following completion of the primary fermentation, the wine was put down to about 70% new Taransaud barrels where it stayed for 18 months until being bottled unfined and unfiltered.
