This 2018 Grgich Hills Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley epitomizes the purity of structure and place. Powerful on the nose, this full-bodied wine has a dense core of forest strawberries and sweet cranberries with the warm essence of vanilla bean and subtle nuances of sandalwood. Soft tannins create a round mouthfeel with dense notes of blackberries underscored with a hint of rosemary and cloves. The midpalate is dense with balanced acidity that supports a satisfying, velvety aftertaste.
Blend: 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, 6% Petit Verdot, 4% Cabernet Franc

4 reviews for Grgich Hills Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2018

  1. WA

    The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon is a blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, 6% Petit Verdot and 4% Cabernet Franc. Deep garnet-purple in color, it strides confidently out of the glass with notes of crushed blueberries, ripe, fresh blackberries and warm cassis plus hints of bay leaves, mossy tree bark and lavender. The medium-bodied palate is chock-full of crunchy black fruits, framed by ripe, grainy tannins and bold freshness, finishing long with loads of mineral sparks.

  2. JS

    Plenty of blackcurrants, flowers and sandalwood on the nose, following through to a full body with tight, creamy tannins that give the wine polish and beauty. Give it a year or two to soften, but already very attractive. From organically grown grapes. Try after 2022.

  3. TP

    Garnet black color. Aromas and flavors of gooey chocolate fudge brownie, caramelized berries and yams, cajeta and ghee, and new suede and herb stuffing with a silky, vibrant, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a seamless, complex, long finish with impressions of coconut milk and nut brittle with silky tannins and moderate oak flavor. A elegant, finely balanced Napa Cabernet with everything in its proper place to produce plentiful pleasure.

  4. VIN

    The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon is an attractive, mid-weight wine to drink now and over the next handful of years. Dried cherry, tobacco, licorice, cedar and earthy notes all grace this expressive, understated Cabernet from Grgich Hills.
