Gemstone Proprietary Red 2004

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

The 2004 Proprietary Red Wine (91% Cabernet Sauvignon and 9% Petit Verdot; 495 cases produced) is better than I predicted from barrel. This opaque purple-hued, amazingly rich wine reveals notes of graphite, blackberries, cassis, licorice, and incense... Robert Parker. A Proprietary Blend wine from California in USA. 2004 Gemstone Proprietary Red Wine 1500ml

Welcome to the website of Gemstone Vineyard, a small, family-owned grape grower and producer of estate wines. Though we do make a minute quantity of Chardonnay, our focus is on crafting richly textured red wines from Bordeaux varietals grown on our 16 acre hillside property in the Yountville appellation of Napa Valley. Our wines are quite limited. Most are sold to members of our allocation list, which you can request to join here, while the rest can be found on the wine lists of great restaurants through the country. "I hope people discover these great wines made by winemaking consultant Philippe Melka... These are stunning wines and all promise long life. The flagship wine is their Gemstone Proprietary Red, which is mostly Cabernet Sauvignon, and the other wine, Facets, usually a rather Bordeaux-styled blend dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon, but with significant proportions of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Petit Verdot."
