This wine is just beginning to drink spectacularly well. The rustic, big, thick 1990 is Californian in its orientation. It is loaded with flavor, but the tannin is coarser when compared to the seamlessness of the 1991's.

A great wine from a terrific vintage, this saturated dark ruby/purple-colored wine exhibits a sweet bouquet of cassis, vanillin, and licorice, full-bodied, opulent flavors, soft tannin, superb expansive of flavor, and gorgeous extraction and length.


Winemaker's Notes:

At the winery, the grapes underwent a gentle destemming and partial crush; the fruit was then fermented at 88°F. Four weeks of skin contact maximized varietal intensity and initiated the process of softening the natural grape tannins. The wine was then racked unfiltered to 60 gallon, Nevers oak barrels for extended aging. Nearly 80 percent of the wine was aged in new French oak, a percentage selected as appropriate for this specific vintage. Fermentation temperature: 88°F Fermentation length: 4 days Skin contact: 30 days Barrels: French oak Wine barreled: 100% Time in barrels: 17 months

Tasting Notes:

The 1990 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve is a rich, flavorful wine with classic Cabernet varietal aromas and flavors. Cassis and berry fruit are complemented by anise, spice and a hint of tobacco in the nose. A wine of great elegance and structure, this 1990 Cabernet possesses a long, lingering finish.
