Karl Lawrence Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley, California, 2009
Overview of the Wine
A wine to remember, indeed--the winery dissolved several years ago, making this one of the last three years to be produced, and a very special find. You can still find winemaker Michael Trujillo over at Sequoia Grove.
Two very close friends with a common dream of producing a fine wine founded Karl Lawrence Cellars in 1991. The name "Karl Lawrence" comes from combining the middle names of the two founding partners: Michael Karl Trujillo and Bryan Lawrence Henry. Their venture together will have the common goal of producing a unique and outstanding Cabernet Sauvignon wine from the wonderful Napa Valley.
The Karl Lawrence Cabernet Sauvignon was made from two renowned vineyards, Morosoli and Lamb Family.
The grapes weree hand harvested at their optimum maturity and delivered to the winery. Crushed to open top fermenters to ferment. After fermentation is complete the wine was then aged for twenty months in French oak barrels. The wines are carefully blended to achieve optimum balance and expression.
