    The Lamborn Carnation 2020 is a captivating blend that tells a story of tradition, innovation, and the meticulous care of winemaker Heidi Barrett and the Lamborn family. This unique Cabernet Sauvignon, produced in the serene Happy Canyon of Santa Barbara, captures the essence of a region blessed with a cool spring and mild summer temperatures in 2020. This climate pattern extended the growing season, allowing for an exceptional period of fruit maturation and flavor development. Unlike the northern parts of the state, Santa Barbara was spared from the wildfires, ensuring that all fruit remained free from smoke damage. The result? A vintage described by many as one of the best in recent memory for Santa Barbara County, balancing pronounced flavors and aromatic excellence.

    Crafted with 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and a touch of 5% Petite Sirah, the Lamborn Carnation 2020 of Lamborn Vineyards showcases a deep magenta and garnet hue, inviting one into its complex world. Upon first glance, this wine immediately sets itself apart with its rich coloration, hinting at the depth of experience to follow. The nose is greeted with an enticing blend of black currant, dark chocolate, fine tannins, pomegranate, and raspberry, beautifully interwoven with caramel and a festive holiday spice that promises warmth and comfort. This introduction prepares the palate for a journey through medium-bodied sips characterized by moderate tannin with attention to detail.

    As winemaker Heidi Barrett’s tasting notes suggest, each sip of the Lamborn Carnation Red 2020 of Lamborn family vineyards reveals rich and decadent layers of chocolate, blueberry, and north star cherry. These robust flavors are perfectly complemented by more subtle hints of gingerbread and orange zest, creating a balanced and playful yet elegant profile. This Cabernet continues to express its beauty and complexity with each moment it evolves in your glass, offering an ever-changing tapestry of flavors that captivate and enchant.

    Robb Report chose this wine as one of ‘The 7 Best Wines to Serve at Your Holiday Feast,’ a testament to its versatility and appeal. With only 467 cases produced, this Lamborn wine is both an exclusive and exquisite choice for those looking to enjoy a bottle now or cellar it for future enjoyment.

    Critical acclaim from Wine Enthusiast, which awarded the wine 93 points, further cements its status. Matt Kettmann’s review highlights the ‘fat aromas of black cherry, warm pastry, graphite, and a punch of herb’ that lead into a bold palate of anise, oregano, and black peppercorn, enhancing the ripe cherry fruits. This review not only praises the wine’s complexity but also nods to the Lamborn family’s legacy of growing carnations, linking the past with the present in every bottle.

    Aged for 22 months in French oak, with 34% new barrels, the Lamborn Carnation Red 2020 benefits from the nuanced influences of its cooperage, adding layers of texture and subtlety to its already impressive profile. With an alcohol content of 14.6%, this wine strikes a fine balance between strength and drinkability, ensuring a memorable experience for all who partake.

    In summary, the Lamborn Wine Carnation Red 2020 stands as a remarkable achievement in winemaking, combining the best of Santa Barbara’s terroir with the artisanal touch of Heidi Barrett. Lamborn Wine, through its dedication to quality and innovation, continues to create wines that resonate deeply with connoisseurs and casual drinkers alike.

    A nod to the family's legacy of growing carnations, this bottling is an example of a Napa estate heading south in the smoky 2020 vintage and the results are delicious. Fat aromas of black cherry, warm pastry, graphite and a punch of herb lead into a bold palate that picks up anise, oregano and black peppercorn to enhance the ripe cherry fruits. — Matt Kettmann
