Named the "Diamond Anniversary Zinfandel" in honor of this wine marking Lamborn's 30th vintage of Zinfandel, this is a balanced and sophisticated Zinfandel with ample dark fruit, well-integrated oak, and a dustiness that makes it so intriguing. Famed Winemaker Heidi Barrett crafted this wine with care and it shows by being perfectly ripe without going overboard on the fruit. 100% Estate Grown, Howell Mountain Zinfandel. 1,029 cases produced.
Heidi Barrett, who made a reputation for herself as winemaker for "cult" wineries such as Screaming Eagle and Grace Family, joined the Lamborn team in 1996. Heidi's well-deserved and established reputation precedes her. Her winemaking techniques are consistent with Lamborn's winegrowing practices: focusing on quality and having a lot of fun in the process. The Lamborns now average about 900 cases a year of handcrafted Howell Mountain, Estate Grown Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon.
Lamborn Family Vineyards is one of the oldest and most storied producers of Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel on Napa Valley's Howell Mountain AVA. Estate fruit grown on expertly maintained vineyards is turned into some of the most heralded wines from Napa by famed winemaker Heidi Barrett of Screaming Eagle fame. We are excited to make Lamborn's wines available to you in the Winestyr marketplace.More from this winery
