||Grace Family Vineyard
1983 Grace Family Vineyard Cabernet - FIRST VINTAGE! This wine has a distinctive smoky tarry character that runs through the aromas and flavors. It's full-bodied with high extract and ample tannins and very ripe plummy chocolately Cabernet fruit that has some heat on the finish. After nearly a decade of growing grapes, Dick and Ann brought their friend, renowned winery architect John Lail, in to design a uniquely charming and evocative building for making wine. The hand carved wooden entrance leads to a small, sculptured stone and wood sanctuary that evokes the kind of serenity and beauty found more commonly in the Buddhist temples of Nepal than in the wineries of California. This winery temple is a testament to a philosophy of living that transcends fine wine as a beverage, making it also a catalyst for change.
