1984 MOFFETT VINEYARD - ESTATE
Cabernet Sauvignon

Winemaking Information
The summer of 1984 was quite warm and started the vines off with a healthy burst. The fall had very constant temperature and ripened the fruit nicely by the middle of September. The small crop of the Moffett Vineyard was picked on September 12th

Tasting Notes
A pretty, multi-layered presentation of ripe currants, cocoa and sweet oak in the nose is repeated in the well-polished, fruity flavors of this engaging wine. Moderately full and very carefully balanced, it is rounded on the palate without a hint of undue softness and its tannins, while apparent, are gentle and unobtrusive. -Connoisseurs’ Guide
