1992 MOFFETT VINEYARD - ESTATE
Cabernet Sauvignon

Winemaking Information
1992 growing season started off quite mild, and then in August we had a big heat wave, which put the grapes into full gear. Fortunately, September cooled down and allowed for the proper amount of hang time. The result was a well-balanced and complex wine.

Tasting Notes
Great concentration of ripe fruit aromas of blackberry, plum, currants and raspberry jam. These fruit aromas are complex with spice aromas of cassis, mint and toasty oak. The flavors parallel the aromas with a complex array of ripe berries, currants and a light touch of vanilla bean. The wine’s structure is very lively with fleshy, medium weight tannin for enjoyment and guaranteed longevity for the next twenty years. The Moffett’s finish continues with dark berry flavors and a touch of anise.
