Herb Lamb Vineyards 2011 "HL Vineyards" Cabernet Sauvignon
Winemaker Michael Trujillo says, “2011 gave us pretty wines as opposed to powerful, overwhelming wines. They are fresh, clean and complex with focused acidity and lower pH, but lots of varietal expression. It was a very challenging vintage - a winemaker’s vintage. But it’s a sleeper vintage that will definitely improve with aeration or a year or two in the bottle.”
The 2011 HL Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon is a restrained vintage in terms of ripeness and alcohol – more elegant and structured than overly powerful, with softer tannins, higher acids and great balance. On the nose, there are red fruit characters of dried cherry, currant and cranberry, with toasty, nutty and vanillin notes. In the mouth, the red fruits are predominant, featuring red and black cherry with notes of plum, tobacco, cinnamon and spice. Hints of vanilla and roasted coffee linger with cherry and cocoa. There is a good after taste, with fine oak integration. The wine finishes clean and bright with mocha and black cherry overtones. ~Tasting notes prepared by Michael Trujillo, Winemaker, Herb Lamb Vineyards
