Sequoia Grove Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 1985

Member Review by atonalprime:

Whoever rated this wine in August of 88 was closer to what I'm feeling right now. An amazing steal of a purchase from a private collection at an insane price, and I'm glad I popped the cork now, though it could have kept aging at least a few years and still been magnificent. After decanting (lots of sediment) it had an essence of strawberry floating on the nose and on the palette. Still plenty of tannin, but after about 25min, the tannins became very soft and the wine had a perfect body of herbs, strawberries and cherries. The overall balance of this wine was tremendous.

Sequoia Grove Vineyards:
There’s most definitely something special about life in the Grove. Is it the towering Sequoia trees that define the estate and inspired the name? Is it the atmosphere of unassuming sophistication? Is it our unique combination of award-winning wines (led by our signature Cabernet) created with an artisan spirit? It’s all of the above—and more. And it’s right here, waiting to be discovered.
