Winemaker's Notes

It's not surprising that the wine made from Grace clone grapes grown at Chotsie and Alan Blank's 1.8 acre vineyard in Rutherford shows similarities of style to the wine made from our own vineyard in St. Helena. Smooth, firm tannins give an elegant supple texture that frames a graceful and harmonious whole. But Blank Vineyard's own unique terroir affords it a very unique personality as well. The wine serves up a beguiling array of wintergreen, herb and spice notes that point toward coffee and camphor in addition to ripe red fruit. Not really a sibling, but rather a cousin of the original Grace Family Cabernet.

Critical Acclaim

"Good red-ruby. Black cherry, flowers, eucalyptus and tar on the nose. Fatter and lusher than the 2003, with supple flavors of red cherry and mint. Offers a restrained sweetness but only moderate complexity and texture. Some green notes emerge with aeration."
