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.
87 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2011
Bright, green-tinged yellow. Supple and juicy, with firm acidity framing the flavors of citrus zest, pear, minerals and vanilla; a light peppery quality provides lift. Not especially complex or long, but there's good fruit and cut here.
