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.

(13.5% alcohol): Bright, medium cherry-red. Pungent aromas of cherry, raspberry, spices, cola and orange zest, complicated by a smoky nuance. Bright, lively red fruit flavors are silky and easygoing. Very good palate presence and texture here, and more tangy and gripping on the finish than the 2010 model.
