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.  

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.
