Karl Lawrence:
To produce a fine wine it is absolutely necessary to have the finest grapes. Karl Lawrence is very proud of its grape sources and the relationships with the growers that grow them.

To produce a fine wine it is absolutely necessary to have the finest grapes. Karl Lawrence is very proud of its grape sources and the relationships with the growers that grow them. Michael has many years of winemaking experience with grapes from many areas of the Napa Valley. It is that experience which has led him to the selection of Cabernet Sauvignon vineyard for the Karl Lawrence wines. One of the vineyard selections is the Morisoli Vineyard on the valley floor near Rutherford. Fruit from this vineyard shows great Cabernet character and yields a well-rounded wine with intense aroma and flavor, and lends a rich smooth feel to the finished wine. Another vineyard selection is the Lamb Family Vineyard. This hillside mountain vineyard on Howell Mountain produces a more intense and concentrated fruit that gives a big, rich, spicy character to the blended wine. The grapes are hand harvested at their optimum maturity and delivered to the winery. Crushed to open top fermenters where they undergo fermentation. After fermentation is complete the wine is then aged for twenty months in French oak barrels. The wines are then carefully blended to achieve optimum balance and expression. Shortly after blending the wine is bottled and then held for further aging in the bottle. For the seventh consecutive year the Karl Lawrence Cabernet Sauvignon is made from these two renowned vineyards. The combination and blending of the Morosoli grapes and the Lamb Family grapes define the unique Karl Lawrence Cabernet style. The grape combination produces a wine that is rich and full-bodied, well balanced, and enhanced fruit and spice characters. A wine to remember! Read less
