1986 - Limited Cabernet Sauvignon

We choose the most expressive lots from an exceptional year to create an age-worthy Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon that exemplifies the vintage.  

Limited Cabernet Sauvignon
Vintage Notes As the record floods of February 1986 subsided, our vineyards emerged largely unscathed. The storms were followed by a two-week warm spell that accelerated bud break, resulting in the longest growing season we have ever had. Uncertain weather during bloom reduced the crop significantly but led to a greater concentration of flavor in the fruit at harvest time.
