WSI94 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. The vines cover gentle slopes in Saratoga, California on the inland side of the Santa Cruz Mountains. Eight acres of vines were planted on their own roots by Kathryn in 1973. Excellent soil, a climate possessing just the right amount of marine influence, and personal attention combine to yield outstanding grapes. Each vintage is grown by hand and vinified in small lots followed by gentle barrel aging with 90% French oak. Boasting the lowest yield per acre in California at 1/4 tons, this is a massively concentrated and complex wine designed to reward those with the foresight to procure it now and the patience to allow its development. Opulent and monumental, unusually big and super rich for this vineyard and winemaker, in a full throttle style that still attains the signature depth and balance that makes these wines so collectible and sought after every single vintage. 14.8% alcohol. Drink now-2056. 450 cases made.
