Lot #230. Grace Family Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Estate 1992

Description: Consists of 3 Bottles, 0.75L
Score: "These limited production gems certainly merit the hyperbole and accolades they receive. This wine is only available via the winery's mailing list, and I am sure there are more potential suitors than wine to be sold. Current production has dwindled, largely because much of the vineyard is in the process of being replanted due to the phylloxera scourge . . . . Only 75 cases will emerge from [the 1993] vintage, further ensuring a preposterously high price. In 1994 there are 175 cases. These beautifully made wines are among the finest Cabernets in California. I rarely report on them because they are, for all intents and purposes, unobtainable. Yet there is no doubting the high quality aspirations of the owner, and the skills exhibited by winemaking consultant Heidi Barrett in the production, aging, and bottling of these 100% Cabernet Sauvignon wines." Wine Advocate #108, Dec 1996
Notes: Slightly corroded capsules, 1 slightly recessed cork.
