1990 MOFFETT VINEYARD - ESTATE
Cabernet Sauvignon

Winemaking Information
1990 was an excellent growing season. The set was great and the weather looked very promising for a long growing season. The early morning fog throughout most of September allowed the additional hang time for the fruit that everyone was looking for. The Moffett Vineyard was harvested on October 2nd.

Tasting Notes
Aromas of ripe berries are accented with hints of mint and the spices of bay leaves and ginger. This wine has intense, fresh blackberry and chocolate flavors that are reinforced by well-seasoned, toasted oak barrels. There is youthful structure with exceptional length and complexity – enjoy now or await the rewards of patient cellaring over the next 10 years. Rated 91 by The Wine Spectator.
