In 1977 Grgich Hills was born. To this day, Grgich Hills continues to produce a selection of Napa Valley varietal wines of significance. The Cabernet Sauvignon is likely their most famous, not as a wine that shows all it has to offer in its youth, it's in the cellar where this wine shines. The 2006 has just entered its drinking window. ✦ Grgich Hills Cabernet Sauvignon 2006 JS 93 » $73 "A strong and structured red...Full and silky with a solid core of fruit...not at all overdone.
