Winemaker's Notes

This wine is very alive yet subtle, sharply defined while smoothly put together, and entering its prime. The nose is awash in cedar, pine needles, graphite, ash red cherry, and dark plum notes. On the palate, the red cherry character takes over, along with pine and dried cranberries lingering long on the finish. The fine tannins are present as a background, and the acidity is taut, holding it together. This is a complex, old-school , multi layered Cabernet Sauvignon.

Critical Acclaim

"The 1986 Cabernet Sauvignon is a great example of the magic that can develop in a great wine over time. Miraculously timeless, the 1986 shows just how beautiful wines from this hillside property are. Sweet herbs, dried flowers, red stone fruits and tobacco linger on the translucent, weightless finish. The 1986 turns soft, delicate and a touch fleeting over time, but it is still quite pretty and an excellent choice for drinking over the next decade or so. Today, the 1986 is a real stunner."

The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon

(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes. Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity. Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...
