Reviews For This Wine

International Wine Cellar | 88(+?)

($35) Bright, dark ruby-red. Musky aromas of currant, plum, bitter chocolate and game. Intensely flavored but quite restrained, with juicy, slightly tart-edged red berry and licorice flavors and a faint greenness. Finishes firmly tannic and youthfully tight. In a restrained, Bordeaux style, and still rather closed after the bottling.

The 1999 Merlot looks to be terrific. There are 500 cases of this ruby/purple-colored wine that has an opulent texture and plenty of pure, sweet, black cherry and berry fruit. The wine is full-bodied, low in acidity, and intense.

About This Producer

Ric Forman, a legend on the Napa wine scene with his integral role in developing the vineyards of Newton and the great Cabernets of Sterling, established his own brand with a debut 1983 vintage. This first wine exceeded anyone's expectations, and Ric has maintained consistent high rankings for his age-worthy Cabernet and Chardonnay, wines of "finesse" and "elegance." Forman also produces a second label called Chateau la Grande Roche.
