The oldest Cabernet Sauvignon vines in the Napa Valley may produce fewer grapes, but they tell a clear story of the terroir they’ve spent over half a century calling their own. Grgich Hills Estate takes vineyard stewardship to the next level and it shows in the depth and richness they achieve with this Old Vine Cabernet. Fabulous aromatic density and complexity drives a layered, elegant wine with ripe blueberries and sweet oak spice in spades.

Plenty of depth and richness of fruit here, this has appealingly ripe blueberries and sweetly fragrant oak spice in abundance. The palate is delivered in a neatly arranged and layered style with ripe and smooth blueberries and a flurry of sweetly spiced, ripe blackcurrants and plums to close. Drink or hold.
