The 2000 Cabernet Sauvignon (260 cases) offers plenty of up-front sweet black currant fruit mixed with toasty new oak and mineral characteristics. It is medium-bodied, plump, and accessible, revealing good fruit in its subtle, restrained personality. It is best drunk now and over the next 12-14 years.

Consultant Heidi Barrett opted to add 5% of the 2001 to the 2000, a clever move that has filled in the middle and added an extra aromatic dimension to a somewhat lighter vintage here. I tasted the before and after versions; this note is for the more impressive after version that will ultimately be bottled. Medium ruby-red. Aromas of wild black fruits, cherry, violet and leather. Lovely sweetness and moderate density in the middle palate; subtle black fruit and floral flavors showed increasing richness and texture as the wine opened in the glass. Not a huge style but quite aromatic and fine; midway between Margaux and Pauillac in style. Finishes long and floral, with sweet, fine tannins and a light peppery nuance.

Description
winery notes: Planted with cuttings from the famous Bosché vineyard not far away, Grace Family vineyards started out as a family hobby. The first harvest was picked by family and friends in 1978 and taken to nearby Caymus Winery in the back of a station wagon. Charlie Wagner, the late Caymus patriarch, tasted a bunch of those first 1978 grapes and exclaimed, "You know, Dick, this is damned fine fruit!" And so one of the Napa Valley's first vineyard designated wines came to be produced.
