($165) Good red-ruby. Sauvage aromas of redcurrant, mocha, smoke and leather. Lush and smooth, with raspberry, tobacco and smoke notes, along with hints of meat and leather. A bit more rustic than it appeared to be in barrel last year. Tannins are nicely ripe for the vintage. Sexy juice, approachable today and evolving quickly.

The 2000 Cabernet Sauvignon (260 cases) offers plenty of up-front sweet black currant fruit mixed with toasty new oak and mineral characteristics. It is medium-bodied, plump, and accessible, revealing good fruit in its subtle, restrained personality. It is best drunk now and over the next 12-14 years.

About This Producer


In 1976, former stockbroker Dick Grace, along with his wife Ann and their children began growing Cabernet Sauvignon from their eponymous vineyard in St. Helena initially just as a hobby. With their first harvest sold to Caymus and subsequently bottled as one of the first single vineyard designated wines in Napa, they embarked upon the path to becoming one of America's wine legends. Besides maintaining the high reputation of their own vineyard and wines, the Graces have contributed to the development of many others, formerly employing Heidi Barrett, and providing budwood for Hartwell Estate, Vineyard 29, and Blank Family Vineyards. With limited production of and unrelenting demand for their wines, they also pioneered the mailing list/waiting list sales model prevalent among many cult cab producers today.
