Mike Grgich 1st gained international recognition at the celebrated "Paris Tasting" of '76 where a panel of eminent French judges were shocked they chose Mike’s '73 Montelena Chard as the finest white wine in the world! A blend including 12% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot & 4% Cabernet Franc, rich berry fruit aromas, slight menthol kick. On the palate blackberry & cherry, bits of cacao and cinnamon, soft fine tannins. Lingering finish ending with soft oaky notes. Was tight at tasting but opened up, needs more time.

All the classic notes of Napa, a tinge of green notes that settled after a little bit.

Always elegant, Grgich Hills Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 is a wellspring of black currants, raspberry compote, anise, leather, tar and freshly turned soil, still damp from spring rains. Nimbler than most Napa Valley Cabs, the weight is more reminiscent of a Bordeaux with black fruit neatly couched in fine tannins and a sneaky mineral vein wending its way through the core. 14.6% ABV | Sample
