Fisher Cabernet Lamb Vineyard. California Napa Valley 2003

Winemaker's Notes:

Bordeaux lovers rejoice! Powerful aromas of blueberry, powdered cocoa, and black currant with accents of allspice and cinnamon. On first sip this wine displays its heritage with an intense structure formed by firm dusty tannin and outlined by the Lamb Vineyard trademark acidity. Complex flavors of ripe plum, pomegranate, and blackberry complemented by elements of graphite minerality culminate with tongue-dusting tannins. The long finish features the sweet fruit flavor of fresh red cherry eaten right off the tree. Amidst the recent California vintages that have featured ripe ready wines, the 2003 Lamb Vineyard Cabernet is a wine that holds within it the secret to aging with grace, power, and finesse.<br/><br/> <br/> 90 Points Robert Parkers <em>Wine Advocate</em> The 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon Lamb Vineyard (they hadnt decided whether to declassify the 2004 or not) possesses a distinctive style reminiscent of a northern Graves wine from Bordeaux. The wines scorched earth/virile, masculine style, primordial backwardness, and big, black currant, gravelly nose with hints of graphite and hot rocks, are followed by a tannic, medium-bodied, austere wine with undeniable long term aging potential, but not the charm or seductiveness of the other reds. Give it 3-5 years of bottle age, and drink it over the following two decades. <br/><br/>

The winery was founded in 1973, when Fred and Juelle purchased 100 acres in the Mayacamas Mountains on the western slope of Spring Mountain. There, they built a winery tucked in among the vines and Douglas Firs. The winery itself is a product of the estate, having been built from the timber that was cut and milled on-site and crafted into an award-winning facility by their good friend and architect, William Turnbull. In 1976, the family found another 57 acres on the Silverado Trail in the Napa Valley. The property runs from the Napa River to the Eastern Vaca Range, adjacent to the famed Eisele Vineyard, and is the source of our Lamb Vineyard Cabernet, Coach Insignia Cabernet and Cameron, Bordeaux Blend.
