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.

Good full red. Rather low-toned aromas of plum, mocha and smoke; just this side of jammy. A bit unforthcoming in the mouth, with a restrained sweetness to the red fruit, cola and spice flavors. Finishes with dusty, slightly dry-edged tannins. Doesn't quite come alive today.
