Your Premiere Napa Valley wine is a rare 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from the seven-acre Herb
Lamb Vineyards, in the foothills of Howell Mountain. The best barrel of this tremendous vintage was chosen to showcase the elegant, blue fruit and dried herb flavors that come from their cool-climate, rocky, north-east facing hillside vineyard. This wine is fruit forward, showing tobacco, menthol, mocha and cedar. Year after year, the sweet spot of this tiny, hillside vineyard offers excellent ripeness and great acid balance and 2014 was one of the best.

Winemaker, Herb Lamb Vineyards
Michael Trujillo, as Director of Winemaking for Sequoia Grove, was one of the first winemakers to create a wine from the young vines at Herb Lamb Vineyards in 1991. He has been purchasing our grapes for his own labels ever since.
When Jennifer and Herb chose to create their own wines with the 1997 vintage, reflecting on Michael's knowledge of the vineyards and his expert ability to craft a notable wine, he became their first choice to create the HL Vineyards Cab and now our "companion" label wines, Two Old Dogs Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Sauvignon.
