1991 Cabernet Sauvignon

Varietal
Cabernet Sauvignon
Winemaker Notes
100% Cabernet Sauvignon from vineyards throughout the Napa Valley, with over 60% of the blend coming from estate-grown grapes in the Stags Leap District and Rutherford Bench area. The 1991 growing season was one of the most intense, and exciting, in recent memory, with torrential rains in March breaking a 5-year drought, an unusually cool summer delaying the harvest a full month, and Indian summer conditions producing a near-perfect grape crop. We believe the wine that has been fashioned from these grapes comprises one of the great wines of the vintage, and possibly the decade, and below are some comments from wine writers who appear to agree.
