Bottled November 1987. The Wheelers keep this 100% Cabernet Sauvignon as part of their special "library" selection, available to those who visit the winery tasting room in Healdsburg. We grabbed all but a handful of the remaining cases at the winery, so this wine very soon won't be available anywhere! 1985 vintage began with a cool, dry springtime and continued during the summer with typical coastal fog in the mornings. These moderate temperatures allow the grapes to ripen slowly, evenly and fully- in short, a classic set of conditions. The wine is richly textured and has intense fruit flavors of cherries and raspberries.
