Library Wines from The 1990s


The decade of winemaking pushback, the 1990s saw the advent of such terms as “extended maceration” and “physiological ripeness.” Cabernet winemakers begin to rely on taste instead of vineyard analysis to call their picking dates and to use native yeast instead of the more conventional laboratory yeasts. Closer spacing, soil awareness and a large selection of cooperage become important. Winemakers no longer rely on formulas, forging their own hybrid of Old and New World techniques. In the vineyards, we experimented with different shoot positioning. At the winery, yeast selection became an artform. Rather than opting for the “crap shoot” of allowing micro flora to inoculate the juice, our winemakers instead began to carefully choose from various yeast strains to manipulate the fermentation (and finished wine) in different ways.

“To gain lasting fame as a wine grower, a vintner has to be a poet, a philosopher and an honorable man, as well as a master craftsman.”
