Professional Reviews For This Wine


International Wine Cellar | Rating: 90?

Good deep red-ruby. Crushed black cherry, chocolate and violet on the aromatic nose. Juicy and cool in the mouth, with black fruit and licorice flavors currently cut off by slightly dry, edgy tannins. I find this distinctly ungiving for the vintage, in need of at least five or six years of cellaring.

Wine Spectator | Rating: 88

A leaner version, with dried herb, dill, cedar and taut dried berry. Will benefit from some cellar time and reflects the milder level of ripeness of the vintage. May surprise with age.

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.
