2017 Lamborn Cabernet Blend
2200'

Lamborn 2200’ Red Wine Blend 2017
 

100% estate and organically grown Howell Mountain, Napa Valley Cabernet and Zinfandel blend
 

The year began with abundant rainfall. Spring weather was mild, resulting in extended flowering in some areas with little shatter, and vines were vigorous thanks to the winter rains. Three heat events kicked harvest into high gear with cool weather arriving immediately afterward, allowing sugar levels to return to normal. Most late-ripening red grapes continued to hang on the vine and were picked over the next few weeks. By October 8 (when the wine country wildfires started) 90 percent of the 2017 grape tonnage was in across the Valley, including all at Lamborn. Another “picture perfect” growing season in beautiful Napa Valley!
 

Winemaker Heidi Barrett’s tasting notes:
 

"This 2200’ is a stunning wine that immediately stands out with its inky dark complexion and captivating aromas of dark and blue rich fruits. Lavishly exhibiting layers upon layers of dense and chewy mountain fruit, the length of this one seems to extend beyond the horizon. Currant, raspberry, cherry, and vanilla bean on the front effortlessly migrate to hints of caramel and chocolate on the back. The unmistakable, full-bodied mountain Cabernet, softened with a touch of the lushness and spice of Zinfandel, will have you coming back for more and more. This second vintage of estate blend, farmed organically by the Lamborn’s at 2200’ on top of Howell Mountain, is a showstopper. Enjoy now and over the next 15+ years.”

My wife & I recently enjoyed a bottle of the inaugural (2016) 2200. We have had several bottles of the 2200 now & find that it is aging well, it is easy on the palate but need 1/2 hr. in glass to fully open up. Its versatile, enjoy with steak, barbeque, chicken & seafood. Excellent choice. Life is too short to drink bad wine.

We just opened our first bottle of the 2017 2200' blend, and it was absolutely delicious. We really like red blends, and drink them a lot, and this has to be one of the best we have ever had. We will definitely be getting more to cellar and more next year.

So easy to enjoy... we drink a lot of Howell Mountain Cabernet, and at this price point not sure much else compares. This will be a staple in our cellar.
