    Winemaker Notes

    The wines from the 2000 HL Cabernet Sauvignon continue the goal of what winemaker Mike Trujillo calls "stylish representation of classic mountain fruit without the tannin."

    "I"m looking for a wine that tastes like a fresh grape," he adds, "not a tannic, wood driven monster. This vintage is anything but tannic; it is very approachable, almost sexy, with great finesse and balance." Even with almost 90% new Taransaud and Nadalie French oak and over 14% alcohol, this wine is still elegant, fruit driven and forward without being one-dimensional.

    "In the mouth, there is a taste of intense black fruits reflecting the hillside vineyard, with a touch of licorice, spice and cinnamon. I find the 2000 wines comparable to 1996, with a soft entry, concentrated elegance and great varietal character. Similarly, time in bottle will help the balance; already I can taste the silky qualities of this wine. Like the 1996 vintage, it should become even more balanced as it matures, so make sure to give it a few years in your cellar." And make sure to enjoy it with friends!

    Herb Lamb
    The seven acre Herb Lamb Vineyard is located on the ridge of a small valley facing Howell Mountain, just east of St. Helena in the northern Napa Valley. This valley opens on the west directly towards Calistoga and pulls weather from the North Bay marine climate, offering cooling evening fog and morning breezes.

    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 Vineyard in 1991. Seeing the great potential of the Lamb's hillside vineyard, he has been purchasing grapes for his own label, Karl Lawrence, from the Herb Lamb Vineyards ever since.

    When Jennifer and Herb Lamb 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 wine. With the addition of the "Companion" labels, the E II and Two Old Dogs Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Sauvignon, Michael is now director of winemaking for all the Herb Lamb Vineyards brands.
