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.
89(+?) Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2012
Medium red. Slightly reduced, musky aromas of dark raspberry and botanical herbs. Classically dry and rather subdued in the mouth; the most backward of this set of pinots today. Best today on the uncompromisingly dry finish, which shows a fine dusting of tannins and very good length.
