International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 90

(450 cases produced): Deep black ruby. Crystallized black cherry, black raspberry, blackberry, boysenberry, bitter chocolate, shoe polish and sexy oak tones on the perfumed, slightly floral nose. Supple entry, then quite unforthcoming in the middle palate. But already displays uncanny texture and depth, as well as extraordinary ripeness which somewhat mitigates this wine's normal impression of austerity. Distinctly Latour-like. Finishes with strong, tongue-dusting tannins and great persistence. A superb vintage for this boutique cabernet. 94(+?).

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 126

Sadly only 400 cases were made of the 1997. The nearly perfect 1997 Cabernet Sauvignon Herb Lamb Vineyard was bottled in May, 1999, and appears to have recovered beautifully from bottle shock. Saturated black/purple-colored with a knock-out nose of blackberries, blueberries, lavender, licorice, and toast, this is a profound, full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon. It displays a seamless, velvety texture, layers of concentrated fruit, and a 45+ second finish. Am I being too conservative in not giving it a 3-digit score?

Wine Spectator Author: James Suckling

Loads of plums and dried flowers, with hints of fresh roses. Full-bodied, very layered, with wonderful juicy tannins and a long, long finish. A big and powerful wine with everything going for it. Solid core here. Hard not to drink it now.
