This is a full-bodied and well balanced Cabernet Sauvignon with rich flavors of blackberries, black licorice and a hint of allspice with a long, seductive finish. Having the patience to cellar this wine will reward you in the glass years from now. Serve with simply roasted meat dishes or all by itself to fully enjoy the wine's complex flavors.

Wine AdvocateOne of the iconic names in Napa Valley and also part of the rich history for quality wine, the Grgich Hills Estate 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Yountville Old Vine (which is not actually defined age-wise on the back label) has a dense purple color. Beautiful cassis fruit cascades over the palate. Without a hard edge, this wine has an opulence and richness that is very much in keeping with the vintage character. This wine has terrific purity and long length. This is a stunning, rich, very seductive Cabernet Sauvignon that is full-bodied and best drunk over the next 10-15 years, although I'm sure that if well stored it will last a lot longer.

Wine EnthusiastFrom vines planted in 1959 on old rootstock, this is an intensely concentrated wine, dense and meaty, with flavors of bouillon, cedar, leather and clove. Lengthy and complex, it offers structure and balance within ripe black fruit seasoned by peppercorn.
