    Good deep red. Cool nose and palate dominated by eucalyptus, mint and licorice. Nicely delineated and fine-grained, but the pronounced mintiness currently overshadows the wine's rather delicate fruit. Finishes with slightly drying tannins. This distinctive wine always has a eucalyptus component, but in 2009 and 2010 there's not quite enough supporting density and sweetness of fruit.

  • 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.
