Grgich Hills Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Estate Grown 2009
Very tight nose with aromas of currant and cassis. Anise, licorice and cassis up front on the palate. Also, flavors of blackberry. Big tannin and acid. Very tight and dry. Black plum notes, maduro tobacco, tar and ink. Definitely needs time. It's huge, tight and dark. 88 pts. 5/10/13 at winery
Solid cab, very drinkable but didn't knock my socks off
Really good. Smooth. Short finish. Fleming's.
Four and a half glasses
[Prime, LV. Heirloom tomatoes, strip steak, potatoes.] big, but balanced, fruit on the nose, root beer, tannic. Not my favorite but nice
Nicely red colored with, thankfully, no brownishness indicative of oxidation. A fairly big nose, although with some volatility. Not terribly forceful on entry to the palate--only moderate berry/cassis flavors. As you might expect, very mild tannin. Some tartness makes me want to eat something with this. However, this one is probably past its peak. US$33.99 at the Wine Club in Santa Ana in 1999.
External Reviews for Grgich Hills Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Estate Grown
There's lots of richness to this Cabernet, a testimony to the sunny ripeness of the vintage. It bursts with flavors of cassis and blackberry and blueberry jam, complemented by the toasty, smoky butteriness of oak barrels. It's a lovely wine to drink now with upscale fare. Our Yountville vineyard forms the heart of our Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, with our Rutherford and Calistoga vineyards rounding out the blend. This Cabernet is packed with rich aromas of black cherry, black licorice and a hint of roasted coffee. Its full body and smooth tannins make it the perfect partner with grilled steak, rack of lamb or roasted duck. - Winery
Elegant and full bodied, the wine's complex aromas of black berries, black licorice and a hint of cocoa powder.
Grgich Hills Cabernet is produced from certified organic wine grapes, not an easy certification to obtain we can assure you. The 2008 Cabernet stays true to varietal character and has a healthy dose of tannic structure.

Bright medium red-ruby. Aromas and flavors of currant, tobacco leaf, fresh herbs, menthol and oak. The palate offers good juicy energy, with redder fruits, especially raspberry, emerging with air. Pepper and herb notes contribute definition to this essentially supple wine. Finishes with a fine spine of dusty tannins that will require at least six or seven years of cellaring. A savory style thats complex and layered, with firm, full-bodied notes of spice, cedar, dried berry, mineral and sage. Ends with a pleasant earthiness. Drink now through 2017. 14,540 cases made. -JL We fermented the grapes using only yeasts that naturally occur on the grapes and allowed the wine to gain flavors and color from extended skin contact. Each lot is aged separately for several months, and then blended to create a wine that is more complex than the individual parts. After blending, the wine spent another year and half in barrel to completely harmonize before bottlin...

All of the grapes were grown at our estate vineyards in Yountville and Rutherford and they are certified organic and Biodynamic.
