More About This Wine
In 1977, David Graves and Richard Ward met for the first time in a oenology class at UC Davis. Both Pinot Noir lovers, they decided to start bottling their own. By 1981 they had released their first vintage, 2000 cases from purchased Carneros grapes.

Musky lemon and peach on the nose, along with sweet, toasty oak. Large-scaled and fleshy; sweeter and fuller than the regular 2000 bottling but less vibrant and much oakier. Finishes with good length and rather strong oakiness.
