(From 2011 Vintage) Our Cabernet is rich with aromas of balsamic glazed figs, dried rose petals and a touch of green peppercorns. Smooth and rich on the palate with a persistent finish.
(From 2010 Vintage) A wine that offers a tight, focused beam of loamy earth, dried dark berry, cedar, anise and espresso. Features good length, with gripping tannins. Shows Grgich Hills at the top of its Cabernet game.
Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wines(10% Merlot; 4% Cabernet Franc). Mild and narrowly framed faintly raspberry-like fruit is teamed with touches of toast, mint and vanilla in the clean, comparatively low-keyed aromas here. The wine perks up as expected in the mouth, yet its somewhat complex, slightly closed flavors are rather more deep in fruit than first suggested. Still limited by tannin and a bit of acidic stiffness, this one makes a clear case for cellaring and should be held for five or six years.
