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.
Tasting notes: 86% Cabernet Sauvignon and 14% Merlot. This dark ruby Cabernet Sauvignon shows an intense nose of blackberry and sweet Asian spice intermixed. The wine reveals an extremely supple tannin texture with the strength and power of beautiful Napa Valley Cabernet fruit. Black pepper and blueberry fruit interplay along with a note of graphite and a subtle vanilla touch on the finish.
The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville is a beauty, revealing a dense ruby/purple color as well as a great nose of spice, red and black currants, tobacco leaf, and cedary herbs. Full-bodied and nicely textured, with a great mid-palate, this incredibly satisfying, balanced 2018 can be drunk today or cellared for 15-20 years. It’s well worth seeking out. ~93 Jeb Dunnuck
