2020 Lamborn "Carnation" Cabernet Sauvignon
Santa Barbara had a cool spring and mild summer temperatures that extended the growing season allowing for prolonged fruit maturation and flavor development. 2020 offered a quick and even harvest with yields that were average to below average, helping to produce pronounced flavors and aromatics. Santa Barbara did not have the wildfires that plagued the north part of the state and all fruit was spared smoke damage. Wines from this vintage are exceptionally balanced and 2020 could be one of the best growing seasons in Santa Barbara County yet.
“Showcasing a deep magenta and garnet hue, the nose immediately offers notes of currant, pomegranate, and raspberry fruit intertwined with caramel and holiday spice. Medium body with moderate tannin, rich and decadent layers of chocolate, blueberry, and north star cherry predominate more subtle hints of gingerbread and orange zest. This is a playful yet elegant Cabernet that continues to express its beauty as it evolves in your glass.”
