Grgich Hills Cabernet Sauvignon Miljenko's 100th Birthday 2019

Product description

Grgich Hills is proud to be the custodians to some of the oldest Cabernet Sauvignon vines in the Napa Valley. Their Yountville Cabernet Sauvignon vines were planted in 1959 to the Inglenook clone (also known as Niebaum Cabernet Sauvignon #29) on St. George rootstock. More than a half century old, these vines have developed a root system that reaches deep into the subsoil to access all the available nutrients. They produce fewer grapes at this age but more concentrated, intense flavors that express a greater depth of terroir and complexity. They farm all of their certified organic vineyards naturally, using the principles of regenerative agriculture.

This elegant wine starts with complex aromas of brambly blackberry, rosehip, red currant, and blood orange followed by flavors of sweet cherry, blueberry, rosemary, and dry peat. The tannins are soft and round and velvety leading to a long luscious finish.
