International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 84

Saturated ruby. Penetrating aromas of cassis, black cherry, licorice and shoe polish; essence of Napa cabernet. Superb purity of dark berry flavor, complicated by mineral and spice notes. The wine sweetness is quite restrained owing to its firm spine of tannins and acids. A classic rather than exotic style of cabernet, in spite of the vintage's tendency toward roasted ripeness. Extremely long on the aftertaste; the somewhat tough tannins will require at least a few years of bottle aging.

The saturated black/purple-colored 1996 Cabernet Sauvignon Herb Lamb Vineyard displays this winery's hallmark - a provocative nose of blueberry jam, orchid flowers, and smoky new oak intertwined with cassis. Additional aromas of licorice and exotic Asian spices emerge as the wine sits in the glass. Extremely full-bodied and rich, with more noticeable tannin than the 1997, this large-scaled yet extraordinarily rich wine is like drinking cassis/blueberry liqueur. Its sweet tannin and remarkable 40+-second finish are amazing. This wine is aged in 100% new Taransaud barrels for 18 months, and bottled with no fining or filtration.

Wine Spectator Author: James Suckling Issue: Web

Very complex, with aromas that offer ripe currant, cedar, fresh earth and black olive scents, shaded by hints of dill and spice. Smoothing out on the palate, where the flavors run deep. The tannins are still firm. The best of four bottles tasted.--1996 California Cabernet retrospective.
