John Gilman: "The 1978 vintage in California was one of the finest years in what may well have been the greatest decade of wine production in the history of the state. The decade of the 1970s is replete with legendary years, including 1970, 1973, 1974, 1975 and 1978, and as the years have rolled by, none of these vintages have lost any of their luster. When one considers that the drought years of 1976 and 1977 have also aged long and gracefully, it is pretty hard not to conclude that the decade of the 1970s was indeed, the finest in the history of California wine. In many ways, this decade in California wine was analogous to the decade of the 1980s in Bordeaux or the 2000s in Burgundy. It is not at all surprising that the world would first come to truly take note of the quality of California wines in the 1970s. Amongst all of these excellent 1970s’ vintages, the three that have stood out most prominently in popular imagination are 1970, 1974 and 1978." (View From the Cellar, 01/2017)
