Professional Reviews For This Wine


International Wine Cellar | Rating: 89-92

Bright medium ruby. Primary aromas of blueberry, raspberry, mint and violet, complicated by sexy oak spices. Dense but tightly wound, with intense flavors of black cherry, bitter chocolate and eucalyptus. A bit stunted today in the middle palate, but finishes with nicely refined tannins.

Wine Advocate | Rating: 89

There are 110 cases of the 1999 Cabernet Sauvignon from this well-known site on the west side of Route 29, north of St. Helena. Its dark purple color is accompanied by aromas of lead pencil shavings, pure black currants, vanilla, and licorice. The wine is medium to full-bodied, with good underlying acidity, firmness, and an elegant, restrained, structured feel. It will be at its finest between 2005-2017.

About This Producer


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.

Wine Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon


Cabernet Sauvignon is perhaps the world's best known red variety, with its full-bodied, intense profile. An offspring of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc, it is the primary grape of Bordeaux's Left Bank (Medoc and Graves regions) and the Napa Valley, but can be found growing all over the world. Typical descriptors for Cabernet Sauvignon are cassis, cedar, mint, black pepper, eucalyptus, and pencil lead.
