  • Vinous | Rating: 92

    Deep ruby. Perfumed aromas of blackberry, bitter chocolate, violet and pepper; this reminded me of Chateau Rauzan-Segla. Very dense, primary and intensely flavored, with penetrating flavors of darkest berries, bitter chocolate and licorice. Extremely backward, and currently dominated by its strong acids and firm tannic spine. Very subtle and very long on the aftertaste. A bit hard to taste today, but obviously a wine with outstanding potential.

    Dark and ripe, rich and elegant, with a core of cedary currant, earth and berry, finishing with supple, polished tannins and good length. Available only in 1L-bottles by mailing list. Best from 2002 through 2012. 48 cases made. — JL

  • 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.
