THE GRADE is made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon fruit cultivated at our estate vineyard. The wine captures the distinctive upland earthiness and rusticity of Calistoga Cabernet Sauvignon expressed through the wine’s balanced structure and the deep richness of crisp red-berry and dark-berry fruits.
This single-vineyard handcrafted wine has a clean fruit-forward style that expresses the benefits of our sustainable farming practices and unique barrel-aging techniques.
Review: Shows a great return to form over the 2006, with the lush flavors and rich attractions of the 2005. With soft but complex tannins, the wine immediately appeals for its wealth of blackberries, black currants and plums, enriched with smoky oak. Very rich, pure and refined. Fine now, with a good decant, and should age well for a decade. - S.H.
