Yes, another great vintage showed up soon after that. That next great vintage, in my opinion, was 1985, the very year we were there for the harvest.
There was fog and/or light rain every morning during our trip there. At some of the wineries, they spoke of this being a great year if there was just enough rain in the next two weeks but not too much. Well, apparently, there was. When we got to taste the 85s a few years later, many of them, red and white, became our favorites. We bought so much of it, in fact, that we are just now getting to the bottom of the last several cases.
