2003 Karl Lawrence Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1022833 91 points Wine Spectator

 Complex and complete, with ripe currant, spice box, cedar and blackberry fruit. Tight, firm and focused on the palate, this is deeply fruity and ends with ripe, structured tannins. (JL)  (6/2007)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Four impressive Cabernets from founding partners and friends, Michael Karl Trujillo and Bryan Lawrence Henry, include the 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon. Its deep ruby/purple color is followed by a juicy, succulent mid-palate, silky tannin, and a judicious touch of spicy oak. (RP)  (12/2006)

Connoisseurs Guide

 There is much to like about this fairly gutsy, big-bodied offering, and it is hard not to be immediately drawn in by its deep and dense aromas of pure cassis and very rich oak. Its flavors, too, are brimming with ripe currants and sweet, barrel spice, but all of its richness comes at the cost of constricting tannins and a slight edge of heat. Its drying astringency is only a problem in terms of near-term consumption, however, and there is plenty in place to raise high expectations for an enjoyable, full-flavored wine some five or six years hence.  (8/2006)

K&L Notes

The Karl Lawrence Cabernet Sauvignon is made from two renowned vineyards. The combination and blending of the Morosoli grapes and the Lamb Family grapes produces a wine that is rich and full-bodied, well balanced, and loaded with fruit and spice. A wine to remember!
