1987 followed the same early budbreak pattern established in 1984. The growing season was dry, cool, and moderately long. An earlier-than-normal harvest yielded clean, well-balanced fruit. Showing great structure, the wines are generous and intense.
Blend: 96% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Cabernet Franc, 1% Merlot
Extra facets and dimensions abound in this deeplycomplex and flavorful wine. Impressive for itsfocus and finesse, though there's an underlyingfirmness and authority in the core of chewycurrant, herb and anise flavors. Delicious.
Deep garnet-brick. Mature Cabernet notes of warm cassis, dried herbs, mushrooms, black pepper and sweaty saddles. The medium to full bodied palate provides plenty of gamey, dried berry fruit with a medium level of silky tannins and medium to high acidity. Great balance. Long finish.
