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 notes86% 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.

Reviews

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
