Grgich Hills Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley
(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.
Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wines8% Merlot; 2% Cabernet Franc. If long on the sweeter, vanillin, almost root-beer-like elements of very creamy oak, this graceful, medium-dense Cabernet comes with plenty of engaging, easy-to-taste fruit working in its favor and is focused on currants and ripe black cherries throughout. Slightly rounded on the palate and a bit narrow in back, it is a deep, accessible and eminently tasty wine that is thoroughly enjoyable now yet still has a plenty of room for mid-term improvement.
