1974 Cabernet Sauvignon

Winemaking Data Grapes were harvested at an average of 21.6° Brix and aged initially in Yugoslavian oak and French oak barrels before blended and bottled in August 1976.

Vintage Notes The threats of early and severe rains during the 1974 harvest were supplanted by an unusually warm "Indian Summer", permitting some growers the luxury of harvesting well balanced, ripe Cabernet Sauvignon several weeks later than usual.
