($165) Good deep ruby-red. Aromas of cassis, violet and tobacco. Dense and rich but dry, with highly concentrated, complex flavors of plum, chocolate, tobacco and woodsmoke. Not at all a sweet style of Napa cabernet, but has power and impact and finishes with lovely ripeness. A rare collectible cabernet with alcohol under 14% (actually 13.9%).

Sturdy and concentrated, with rich flavors that build on a core of tight currant, black cherry, pencil lead, fresh earth, herbs and toasty oak, finishing with a complex aftertaste that's long and focused. 325 cases made.

2001 strikes again. After underperforming for quite some time, the 2001 bottling shows how good a Grace Family Cabernet can be. Tasted from bottle, each time the wine showed tons of sweet mocha laden fruit and excellent length. Plenty more sweet candied plum and menthol came through on the palate. Simply gorgeous. While it can be drunk now, the wine will mature in 2009 and hold for five plus years afterward.
