MOFFETT VINEYARD - ESTATE
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
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 wines
structure is very lively with fleshy, medium weight tannin
for enjoyment and guaranteed longevity for the next twenty
years. The Moffetts finish continues with dark berry
flavors and a touch of anise.
