This wine is made from some of the oldest Cabernet Sauvignon vines in the Napa Valley, planted in 1959 to the Inglenook clone (also known as Niebaum Cabernet Sauvignon #29) on St. George rootstock in Yountville. Closer to San Pablo Bay than warmer Rutherford, this relatively cool region allows the grapes plenty of time to develop unique flavor characteristics. This complex wine with moderate tannins is aged in French oak for 21 months then moved to large oak casks for six additional months.

One 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.

From 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.
