Winemaking Information
Record rains and flooding, first year Randy Dunn made wine from start. Picked grapes riper than before – bought some French Oak barrels as Randy suggested (and a lot of them)! Produced large crop

Tasting Notes
Wine is rich, great depth, ripe black currant flavors, with sweet oak, medium tannins and spicy overtones. Very smooth with fine overall balance. One of four ’86 California Cabernets to receive 3 “puffs” from Connoisseur Guide.
