The Herb Lamb vineyard has a history of producing some of the most distinct wines in the Napa Valley, not least Colgin, which drew its fruit from the Vineyard between 1992 and 2007. For this wine TOR have taken fruit from the same sunny middle section used by Colgin, then fermented it in a very hands-off manner in order to best express the singular profile of this historic vineyard. Following fermentation the wine was put down to new Taransaud barrels where it stayed for 18 months until being bottled unfined and unfiltered. A fascinating counterpoint to the wine produced by Herb Lamb themselves, the TOR Herb Lamb Cabernet shows the profile of this historic vineyard, but with additional depth and intensity. On the nose there is copious cassis, dark chocolate and hints of bay leaf. The palate is quite dense and rich, but exhibits more of the Old World flavour profile of Cabernet with hints of charcoal, lavender and bitter sweet chocolate. A beautiful and truly unique expression of Cabernet.
