TN - 2005 Karl Lawrence Cabernet Sauvignon
Wonderful wine. Nice balance, well integrated tannins, loads of dark fruits, currants, and a little tobacco box. Just the right touch of vanilla oak char. Nice mouthfeel, medium to long finish. Drinking very well and even better than the last time I opened one 6 months ago. Definitely a fantastic Napa Cab that for the price is hard to beat. Easily as good as many $100+ bottles.
With you on Karl Lawrence....big fan...recently opened a 2001 that was stunning. Similar profile to the '05, & beautifully balanced.
I too am a fan of KL cabs. Thanks for the report on the 2005. From '05 I have some of the Herb Lamb, Beckstoffer and Morisoli. Do you recall which one of their '05 Cabs you had? I think they made 4 or so different ones that vintage.
