The Herb Lamb Vineyards occupy a tiny 5-acre plot on a remote hillside just below Howell Mountain. Herb and Jennifer Lamb purchased the 7-acre property in 1987 and planted vines the following year. At an elevation of 800 feet the vineyard faces the northeast and benefits from its own unique microclimate.

After over 10 years of growing, Herb Lamb says they know the exact “sweet spot”: 13 rows in the center of the vineyard which they use to produce their premium Cabernet Sauvignon. Karl Lawrence and Colgin were among other lucky producers who sourced fruit from this here for some of their most prized wines.

2005 was very similar to 1997 and 2007 and has a lovely concentration but also a great purity. 80% of the wine has been aged in new French oak which gives aromas of dark chocolate, smoke and cedar wood. The palate is long, ripe and juicy. 

This incredible wine pairs amazingly well with our Venison course
