Grand Napa Vineyards is located in the heart of Rutherford, near the foot of Mt. St. John in the Mayacamas mountain range. From Grand Napa’s home in Rutherford, Winemaker, Dwight Bonewell, sources fruit from the best vineyards in Napa Valley, including some of its other most prestigious sub-appellations––Diamond Mountain, Mt. Veeder, Spring Mountain, Oakville, Atlas Peak, and Carneros. Dwight is involved in every step of the winemaking process at Grand Napa because ultimately, it’s the commitment of the winemaker that separates the mediocre wines from the memorable. When you uncork A Grand Napa wine and decant it, when you look at its legs as it clings to your glass, when its fragrance and taste marry as they dance across your palate, and when your delight lingers in its finish, you will have discovered the treasures of Grand Napa Vineyards.
But there is more. Within the Napa appellation are 17 unique sub-appellations, and at its very heart, you will find Rutherford, home of Grand Napa Vineyards. Flanked by the Mayacamas and Vaca Mountain Ranges, this small, verdant valley with its chalky, dusty soil and perfect Mediterranean climate produces many of Napa’s most sought after wines. Extraordinary Cabernet Sauvignons and creamy Chardonnays are born here, but Cabernet Sauvignon is king. André Tchelistcheff, the master winemaker who shepherded California into its brilliant new era of winemaking saw the importance of Rutherford this way: “It takes Rutherford dust to grow great Cabernet.” This is the home of Grand Napa Vineyards.
Tasting notes: Red Wine. 87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot. Aromas of black currant and ripe plum are complemented with rich blackberry flavors. This densely structured Cabernet Sauvignon continues to build weight into a long and concentrated finish.
A dusty textured red with dark berry and chocolate character. Hints of dried fruit and fig. Full body, round and juicy tannins, and a flavorful finish. A blend of 87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot. Drink or hold. ~91 James Suckling

When I think of a Napa Cab, I think of an aromatic, full bodied, flavorful (with waves or levels of flavor), smooth, delicious wine that leaves tastes and flavors and a good feeling in your mouth and throat even after you have swallowed it. This is such a Napa Cab. Delicious! Thank you, Big Hammer Wines.
