Review: 2008 Grgich Hills Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley


2008 Grgich Hills Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Napa ValleyGrgich Hills is an iconic winery of Napa Valley, but the wines tend to be all over the map, an inevitability, perhaps, of increasing production to the point where the wines are omnipresent — albeit expensive — in the supermarkets of America now.

This Cabernet is perhaps the winery’s flagship bottling, widely available yet pedigreed, with 100% Napa fruit.

Though the wine’s now four years old, it still comes across as young, very fruity but with lots of volatility and acidity in the glass. Big blackberry is backed with cocoa and some spice, but it’s still a bit muddy. Looking for balance here… but not expecting it for another 4 to 5 years.
