Another year with very little rainfall but text-book growing conditions, 2013 gave us exceptionally bold wines. In the vineyard, we had early bud break, early flower set, early veraison, and an ideal balanced summer leading to an early harvest. We harvested about the same bountiful yields as the year prior, with excellent ripeness and great acid balance to boot! The typical Herb Lamb Vineyard characteristics of tobacco, mocha, menthol, cedar, and red and blue fruits are present in the 2013 Two Old Dogs Cabernet Sauvignon, and we think this structured wine is even more worthy of age than the previous vintage. We cannot wait to share this beautiful wine with you!
Hope you enjoy the footage and photos from last week’s bottling.
First bottle off the line — paired with Napa’s own Buttercream Bakery doughnuts! Hey, don’t judge us…it’s was 8 a.m., we promise.
What a team we have. With Jennifer Lamb below: Thomas Jordan of Peregrine Mobile Bottling and Herb Lamb Winemaker Michael Trujillo.
