2016 Grace Family Estate

Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley

Drinking Window 2022-2045

250 Cases Produced

OMG. Blackberries, blackcurrants, blueberries, licorice, and spearmint. Mint, too. Full-bodied, so tight and poised with super tightness and focus. Phenomenal depth and composure. This shows real Napa character that harkens back to the Heitz Martha’s 1968. Benchmark to consider. Better after 2023. 100 Points.

James Suckling, May 2019

Even better from bottle than it was from barrel, the Grace 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon is a real head-turner. While so many 2015s are flashy, the Grace is powerful, structured and inward, all qualities that will serve it well during what is likely to be a very long life in the cellar. Beams of tannin and bright acids give the wine a level of tension and translucent energy that is exceedingly rare in this vintage. Low yields seem to have concentrated both the fruit and structural elements, resulting in a brilliant, towering wine loaded with personality and class. Winemaker Helen Keplinger is doing magnificent work in bringing Grace back to the top in Napa Valley. This is a tremendous showing from Keplinger and proprietor Dick Grace. Don’t miss it!—Antonio Galloni at Vinuos. Tasting date: December 2017

Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley

Drinking Window 2020-2035

280 Cases Produced

Blank’s 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon (Rutherford) is a very beautiful and idiosyncratic wine. Inky, intensely aromatic and highly nuanced, the 2015 has a lot to say. Raspberry jam, kirsch, mint, rose petal and the eucalyptus notes that are so typical of this wine are all finely knit in this subtle, understated Cabernet Sauvignon. The bright, red fruit profile and distinctive savory notes give this mid-weight Cabernet Sauvignon lovely freshness. Silky tannins add to the wine’s gracious, polished personality. The Blank Cabernet Sauvignon emerges from a tiny property in Rutherford planted with Grace clone Cabernet that originated in the famed Bosché Vineyard. Helen Keplinger continues to do terrific work in coaxing every drop of potential out of this site.—Antonio Galloni at Vinuos. Tasting date: December 2017
