Grassi Family Vineyards Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

$74.99

A great newcomer to the Napa Cabernet scene!  Silver Oak has a vineyard next door and their neighbor to the west sells their fruit to Caymus: Grassi comes from prime Cab country.  Mary Maher, vineyard manager for Harlan, and winemaker Robbie Meyer were instrumental in developing the vineyard and crafting a fantastic small-production Cabernet.94 Points Antonio Galloni:  "Dark blue and purplish fruit, spices, cloves, menthol and cedar are some of the many notes that flesh out as Grassi's 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon shows off its open, engaging personality. This is a gorgeous, supple 2012 built on fruit, texture and exuberance, all of which make it an excellence choice for drinking over the next decade or so. Best of all, Grassi's 2012 is a terrific value in artisan, hand-made Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon." Robert Parker:  "Grassi is one of my favorite under the radar producers in Napa Valley. The estate excels with both Ribolla Gialla – a white grape native to Italy’s Friuli – and Cabernet Sauvignon. Best of all, the wines remain very fairly priced considering the quality of what is in the glass.”  Wine Spectator: "A Newcomer To Watch"

How have I never heard of this? This was killer! Cinnamon and clove. Mainly blue and black fruits. Truffled chocolate and plum. Well balanced and great finish. Believe this is around $70/bottle? STEAL.
