Library Wines from The 1980s


Site selection becomes key as sub-appellations are ratified and awareness of “terroir” grows in the winemaking community. In the mid-eighties, two trends begin to take hold: the “oak bomb” and the “food wine.” The former emphasized a tendency toward a strong oak signature in Cabernet while the latter focused on a European style of wine with higher acid levels. Neither trend was particularly well accepted! But it was part and parcel of a larger evolution. A phylloxera outbreak sent us out into the vineyards to replant, allowing us to choose new rootstocks and clones from the scion, as well as new trellising systems that enhanced shoot positioning, maximizing color and flavor development in the fruit.
For library wine availability, please call (800) 963-9698 x3706 to speak with our Library Wines Concierge.

“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.”

– Chuck Carpy
