2005 Grace Family Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (1L)

SKU #1206483 93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Bright, saturated ruby-red. Deep aromas of black fruits, violet, tobacco, licorice, minerals, nuts and earth. Lush, rich and sweet, with an intriguing smoky character and lovely lightness for a wine with so much breadth and volume. Unusually powerful and deep for this bottling; complex and distinctive. In a rather Old World style, with complex soil tones currently dominating primary fruitiness. Finishes broad and dry, with very lush, fine tannins. A superb vintage for this estate. Winemaker Brookman noted that this was a large crop but the team made three separate passes through the vines to reduce the crop level and then harvested later than ever here. The Grace wine was once aged in all new barrels but as of 2005 that percentage has been cut to 80% to 85%.  (5/2008)

Wine Spectator

 This is dark-colored, dense and chewy, with a meaty, beefy edge to the dried currant and savory herb flavors. Takes time to unwind, but has the depth and concentration to reward short-term cellaring. Best from 2010 through 2016.  (6/2008)
