We are excited to invite you to join us at 4:00 on Saturday, March 27th, for our tasting with Violet and Ivo Grgich of Grgich Hills in Napa Valley. It is impossible to overstate Violet's father Mike Grgich's importance in California wine history as he was the winemaker at Chateau Montelena and made the 1973 Chardonnay which won Stephen Spurrier's legendary Paris tasting in 1976, thereby establishing California wines as on equal footing with the finest wines in the world. March 27th is Mike Grgich's 98th birthday. What a way to celebrate!

Saturday's tasting will include, in this order:
2018 Grgich Hills Chardonnay, $35.99
The 2017 Chardonnay features compelling key lime pie, fresh grapefruit, and toasted almond notes with hints of sea spray, struck match, and ginger. Medium-bodied, the palate is elegant and charged with energy, revealing a racy backbone that beautifully extends the zest and spice laced finish.

Blended of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, 6% Petit Verdot, and 4% Cabernet Franc, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon has a deep garnet-black color and nose of black and red berries, earth and herbs with savory hints. The palate is medium to full-bodied, firm, chewy, and lively.
