Reviews For This Wine


 
International Wine Cellar | 90(+?)?

($225) Bright, full ruby-red. Aromas of blackberry, plum syrup and licorice, with dusty and medicinal nuances. Quite tightly wound at present, with an edge of acidity limiting the wine's sweetness today. This possesses a firm core of bitter chocolate and minerals but comes across as rather tannic now, in need of a bit more mid-palate flesh, not to mention bottle aging.

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.
