1985 Grace Family Vineyards Cabernet - 96 pts!
Grace Family Vineyards is one of Napa Valley's first cult wines. The estate, located in St. Helena, produces only two wines, Grace Family Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon and Blank Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon, with a total production of roughly 500 cases annually.

Proprietors Dick and Ann Grace purchased the estate in 1976, harvesting their first commercial crop in 1978, and were one of the first in the US to implement high-density vine training and use the word "family" in their winery's name. Beyond its highly allocated wines, Grace Family Vineyards runs Grace Family Vineyards Foundation with the mission "wine to act as a catalyst towards healing the planet".

Grace Family Vineyards' first wines were produced by Charlie Wagner at Caymus, who also produced wine from the Grace's fruit under his well-known label. The wines have been produced in-house since 1985 by some of Napa Valley's most esteemed winemakers including Wagner, Gary Galleron, Heidi Barrett, and Gary Brookman.

Rating RP96 - 1985 Grace Family Vineyards Cabernet - 96 pts! Not unexpectedly this is one of the most stunning wines of my 1985 tastings. The wine possesses all the elements of great Cabernet Sauvignon - a sensationally opaque purple color a huge smoky vanillin wonderfully ripe cassis-scented nose that leaps from the glass layers of lavishly rich opulent velvety-textured Cabernet fruit medium to full body sweet tannin and adequate acidity for focus. This gorgeously rich yet still young unevolved tasty Cabernet Sauvignon has another 15-20 years of evolution ahead. RP
