About the Wine

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: 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc. The 2018 Grand Napa "Cellar Selection" offers a vibrant and intense red color. The nose is well-developed with classy aromas of redberry fruit, French vanilla, and a very charming palate thanks to a fine-grained texture and smooth, integrated tannins. The red fruit and sweet spice return toward the long finish for an instant reward.

Reviews

Incorporating 5% Cabernet Franc, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon from Grand Napa Vineyards reveals a deep purple hue as well as a toasty, spicy nose of red and black currants, toasted bread, spring flowers, spice box, and dried, cedary herbs. Showing plenty of richness and depth on the palate, with velvety tannins and a nicely balanced mouthfeel, enjoy this already complex, nuanced Cabernet any time over the coming 15 years or more. It improves nicely with time in the glass and is a beautiful wine. ~93 Jeb Dunnuck
