2015 Lamborn Cabernet Sauvignon

2015 Lamborn Cabernet Sauvignon
Vintage XIII

"This sets the standard of what mountain Cabernet should be. With a cellar life of 20+ years but showing beautifully out of the bottle now, the bouquet is similar in its evolution in your glass. Rich notes of wild blueberry and currant, more concentrated and round thanks to the smaller vintage, open up to boysenberry, roasted coffee, and textured layers of vanilla - compliments of our medium toast French oak barrels. A rich and structured mouthfeel, thanks in part to the Lamborn vineyard’s celebrated fine tannin, carries this beautiful wine from beginning to end, with a long finish. Yet another extraordinary mountaintop Cabernet from Lamborn that will exceed your expectations!" - Heidi Barrett, winemaker


Drought conditions and higher than average temperatures during the 2014/2015 winter caused the soils to warm up early, even more so than we had seen in 2013 and 2014. A cool May, during flowering, had some effect in lowering yields in this vintage, however throughout the year temperatures were higher than normal. We had 26 days over 100 degrees in Napa Valley, whereas in a normal year we might see 10-12, making grape dehydration an issue. This is a classic Napa Valley vintage built on opulence, texture, and voluptuousness. Despite 2015 being a warm year, wines from this vintage are quite fresh as well.

I look forward to the release of the Lamborn Cabernet every year. This vintage is exceptional! I am a loyal Howell Mountain Cabernet fan and have been fortunate enough to try from most of the vineyards, the consistency through the years is impressive. I still haven't found a wine I like better than this.

I do a lot of research on wine regularly. I came across Lamborne winery and saw their history and passion with how they run their vineyard and the care taken in developing just something very special.

I opened my first bottle in 2018 with guests at my home, the reaction was just WOW what did we just taste. In my opinion after visiting a lot of wineries in Napa Vally this is the one that tops them all.

Thank you for all you do I'm a customer for life. When I'm in Napa I will visit.

I popped a bottle just because it just arrived and I wanted to know. Even young, this is a rich and deep wine, with velvet texture with the hints of berries and chocolate. I'm ordering more cause I want to know how it flows in 20 years from now. Fantastic wine Mike!

Tasted this vintage at “A Taste of Howell Mountain “ event in Houston. Was excited to taste because we loved the 2014 so much. The 2015 did not disappoint. Delicious from beginning to end with little to no decent time. Big fruit but balanced structure. Great with food or without.

I was given a gift of Lamborn Cab in 2004. I was sold immediately on the richness and incredibly smooth taste. I remember having that first glass with friends and the talking about how it was like "velvet". I have been a loyal collector and "consumer" of this incredible wine for years. This is a truly special wine.
