MOFFETT VINEYARD - ESTATE
1985 was a great example of a smooth fast harvest season.
The bud break was early and the temperature stayed warm all
the way through verasion. July and August were hot with little
fog, which allowed the fruit to ripen very evenly. We harvested
the Moffett Vineyard on September 20th.
Ripe cherry, black spice, cedary aromas. Deep cassis fruit,
sweet oak, wood. Tannic. Long finish with good balance.
