We scooped up the last of this! Get this special 3-pack vertical featuring the 2014, 2015 & 2016 Herb Lamb Vineyard Cabernet. These are fantastic cabs and we are so fortunate to get our hands on the last of these since Jennifer Lamb was retiring and the vineyard burned.
In a nutshell: Jennifer Lamb leased the Vineyard to Thomas Rivers Brown and then it burned down. They are in the process of rebuilding.
The longer story:
“For more than 30 years I have had the pleasure of growing and selling fruit from my exclusive Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon vineyard along with the added delight of 20+ years producing sought-after Napa Valley wines.
So after countless joys and many sorrows, the time has come for me to retire from selling wine. I have decided to lease out the Herb Lamb Vineyard to the expert hands of winemaker Thomas Rivers Brown, a good friend and 100-point winemaker with a history of working with the best of the best fruit in the Napa and Sonoma Valleys. While there will be no more “HL Cabernet” produced, our fruit will still be available in Rivers-Marie Cabernet Sauvignon bearing the Herb Lamb Vineyard name. Thomas is just as adamant as I that continuing to use our expert vineyard management team from Barbour Vineyard Management will ensure the best possible quality fruit and health and longevity of the vines. “

A reincarnation of Herb Lamb Vineyards is in process!
The burnt vines have been removed, the compost and Bio-Char incorporated, the terraces re-groomed and (some) rocks removed, and we’re ready to install end posts, stakes and wire. We still need to connect the generators and re-plumb the water, but it’s all coming together.
