Napa Valley 1993

1993 was a variable year and a bit of a challenge for growers. It began with a warm spring that ended with rain during the bloom in May, lowering crop size by 20-30% from the start. The summer was moderately cool, with several heat spikes in August and September, forcing growers to harvest in spurts of activity as ripening alternately accelerated and slowed. It was a very good year for early-ripening varietals, white grapes, and Pinot Noir.

It was a good to very good year for the Cabernets and late-ripening grapes, with complexity and moderate depth and power. But, one wonders how much better they could have been if they had enjoyed more even weather conditions. A sound vintage that turned out some excellent wines, but it is mostly outshined by the 1992s and 1994s on either side of it.
