Grgich Hills Yountville vineyard, which they began farming biodynamically in 2003, supplies the main body of their Napa Valley blend. Nicely balanced between fruit and tannin, this elegant wine is rich with aromas of black cherry, crushed rose petals and cocoa powder. This full bodied wine goes well with roasted meats, grilled Portobello mushrooms or a firm cow’s milk cheese such as Edam or Gouda.
"Firm, rich and dense, with a chewy mix of currant, black cherry, plum, anise, mineral and sage notes that gain grip on the finish, with taut tannins. Needs time. Best from 2009 through 2014. 13,760 cases made. –JL" - Rated 88, Wine Spectator
"Red-ruby. Plum, smoke, tobacco, earth and menthol on the nose, with a lightly vegetal aspect. Then moderately dense and tightly wound, with a distinctly herbal quality to the red fruit and tobacco flavors. Offers good palate coverage on the back, but the wine's slightly edgy acids and building tannins call for a few years of patience." - Rated 87, Stephen Tanzer IWC
