Tasting Notes

Date of the tasting notes below is estimated to be the mid 1990’s:

This is definitely a full throttle 70’s style vintage from Mount Eden. Bill Anderson (currently at Chateau Julien) was supervising winemaker. The cepage is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, dry farmed and basket pruned in the on Martin Ray tradition.  Bottle variation has set in on this wine. The best examples are incredibly rich yet fresh with little leaf and and profound terrior, whereas the worst are prime examples of why canopy management is a good idea.
