1985 MOFFETT VINEYARD - ESTATE
Cabernet Sauvignon

Winemaking Information
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.

Tasting Notes
Ripe cherry, black spice, cedary aromas. Deep cassis fruit, sweet oak, wood. Tannic. Long finish with good balance.
