1987 vintage guide for Washington State Cabernet Sauvignon

Washington State Cabernet Sauvignon 1987: Drink now

A variable but generally good vintage

Weather Conditions

After a cool spring, the growing season moved along smoothly and turned out to be somewhat warmer than average. September was usually warm, with a few heat waves. However, the harvest was uneventful, and the crop size was average.

The Cabernets showed well in their youth with ripe varietal character and plenty of depth.
