    OMG. Blackberries, blackcurrants, blueberries, licorice, and spearmint. Mint, too. Full-bodied, so tight and poised with super tightness and focus. Phenomenal depth and composure. This shows real Napa character that harkens back to the Heitz Martha’s 1968. Benchmark to consider. Better after 2023.

    Offers an enticing core of gently steeped dark cherry and plum fruit, gently inlaid with red licorice, singed apple wood, savory and mineral notes. Still youthfully tight, but the structure is fresh and fine-grained, and the finish nicely detailed. One for the cellar. Best from 2022 through 2036. 168 cases made. — JM

  • 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.
