  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 92

    Dense in color and flavor, this is rich and concentrated, with tiers of ripe black cherry, plum and currant flavors and spicy, toasty oak notes. Has plenty of depth and persistence for an '88. Needs cellaring until 1995 or '96 at the earliest. 178 cases made. —

  • 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.
