      This wine is made from a blend of Morosoli and Herb Lamb vineyards. Karl Lawrence can usually be counted on to make very fine wine regardless of vintage. The '98 proves how well Karl Lawrence can do in an off vintage. The 2000 is dark red colored with thick moderately pigmented legs. A classic Cabernet nose of cassis, aged cherry, oak, pain grille, and charcoal. Could use more strength however. Acidity is excessive ? it attenuates the wine?s fruit by a considerable degree. The wine finishes reasonably long with tomato and oak flavors dominating.

    Karl Lawrence Cellars was founded in 1991 by friends Michael Karl Trujillo and Bryan Lawrence Henry with the goal of producing top quality Napa Valley Cabernet.

    Fruit is sourced from two renowned vineyards, Morisoli and Lamb Family. The Morisoli Vineyard lies on the valley floor near Rutherford; fruit from this vineyard shows great Cabernet character and yields a well-rounded wine with intense aroma and flavor, and lends a rich smooth feel to the finished wine. The Lamb Family Vineyard is a hillside mountain vineyard on Howell Mountain which produces a more intense and concentrated fruit that gives a big, rich, spicy character to the blended wine. The combination and blending of the Morosoli grapes and the Lamb Family grapes define the unique Karl Lawrence Cabernet style. The grape combination produces a wine that is rich and full-bodied, well balanced, and enhanced fruit and spice characters.
