    (the crop was down 60% from normal owing to the poor flowering and to strict selection; includes a higher-than-usual percentage of merlot, cabernet franc and petit verdot): Bright, fresh red. Lively, claret-like aromas of redcurrant, spices, underbrush and caraway seed, plus a pungent herbal component. On the palate, redcurrant, cherry, spice and eucalyptus flavors are on the light side but nicely sweet, with an element of medicinal herbs adding complexity. Finishes ripe but classically dry, with a fine-grained dusting of tannins and attractive lingering perfume. Very Bordeaux in style

  • Ric Forman, a legend on the Napa wine scene with his integral role in developing the vineyards of Newton and the great Cabernets of Sterling, established his own brand with a debut 1983 vintage. This first wine exceeded anyone's expectations, and Ric has maintained consistent high rankings for his age-worthy Cabernet and Chardonnay, wines of "finesse" and "elegance." Forman also produces a second label called Chateau la Grande Roche.
