*Two Stars* Very pure, keenly focused Cabernet fruit sits at the heart of this tight, yet varietally fluent youngster and is joined by a careful complement of supportive oak. The wine is fully ripe without tipping to excess, and, while its integral tannins and firming acidity work to limit its accessibility at the moment, they provide a fine backbone for aging, and there is no question but that this one will evolve very nicely over the next six to eight years.
Grgich Hills farms 62 acres of cabernet sauvignon, merlot and petit verdot at the north end of Yountville, on either side of Highway 29. Those organically farmed vines form the basis of this wine, with additional fruit from estate-grown vines in Rutherford and Calistoga. It has the fresh tannins of the 2013 vintage, firm and tight, their power shadowing the fruit in notes of cherry skin and bitter chocolate. Give this time to evolve.
