Tasting Notes

The 1990 Cabernet, our inaugural vintage, was made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon grapes planted in 1982 and 1983. Still showcasing hints of dark fruit and forest floor aromas, this rich, full-bodied wine has a tantalizing nose, breadth of structure and an elegant bouquet that carries through to a graceful and long-lasting finish.


Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate (Dec. 1995) – 95 points
“The 1990 Cabernet Sauvignon (500 cases) is a blockbuster, opaque black/purple colored wine with great intensity, extraordinary ripeness and richness, and a huge finish with a softer style.”

Vineyard Notes

Seavey’s first estate produced Cabernet, the 1990, was made from grapes that came from vines planted in 1982 and 1983 on five different locations of the south-facing hillside vineyard. In 1990, those five hillside blocks yielded only 1.5 tons of grapes per acre, which enhanced the concentration and intensity of the wine.

Production Notes

Winemaking style followed classic Bordeaux methods. Harvested at 24 degrees brix, the juice remained in contact with the skins for an average of 15 days and, following malolactic fermentation, the wine was aged for 30 months in French oak barrels (75% new oak) and then bottled in March 1993.
