Grigch Hills Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
- Cabernet Sauvignon
- Red Wine
Medium to deep garnet-purple colored and blended of 92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot and 2% Cabernet Franc, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon gives up scents of warm black and red currants, baked blackberries and prunes with touches of bay leaves, fallen leaves, tobacco and cedar. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is firm and chewy with just enough fruit and an earthy finish.
Grgich Hills Estate is a historic fixture in Napa Valley, founded by Miljenko "Mike" Grgich in the Rutherford AVA in 1977. The winery produces an array of wines from five estate vineyards located throughout the famous valley, and has received international acclaim for its elegant and balanced wines. Mike Grgich became world famous for crafting the 1973 vintage of Chateau Montelena Chardonnay that ranked top at the famous Judgment of Paris tasting in 1976, beating out some of Burgundy's most famous white wines. As a result, Grgich Hills Estate's Chardonnay is one of the more popular wines in the range.
