I’m not sure if the Grace Family Cabernet is really considered a cult Cab, but it certainly was the first one I ever saw. This limited bottling Cabernet was produced by Caymus Estates way back in the 1970s.
It was always hard to find and reviewed very well, even way back when critics were more miserly with points. The quantities produced by Grace Family have always been minuscule, and even today they only have several acres of vines, ensuring a limited supply of these in-demand wines. I recall seeing Grace Family wines at retail back in the day, not sure how they got there, but today Grace Family sells its wine the cult way -- by mailing list.
