Tasting Notes: "I was able to taste two vintages of the Greer Cabernet, both brilliant wines coming from a tiny three-acre vineyard on the Rutherford Bench. The wines have been made by Aaron Pott since 2001. The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon is more round and supple, with loads of pure Napa magic in its notes of crème de cassis, toasted spice, smoked tobacco, and cedar pencil. Full-bodied, opulent, and loaded with fruit, it still stays pure, precise, and focused, with ripe tannins, a layered, multi-dimensional texture, and one incredible finish. I finished my notes with “Awesome.” Both the 2018 and 2019 are incredible, singular wines readers should seek out.."- Jeb Dunnuck.
"The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon reflects a slightly warmer vintage than the 2018, showing a bit more power and darker fruit characters but also slightly less perfume. Offering up classic notes of cassis and dark loam, it's still tremendously supple, concentrated and long. From a superbly situated three-acre vineyard on Manley Lane in Rutherford, I suspect availability will largely be limited to the mailing list."- Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.
About the Winery: Greer Vineyard is a small, three acre domaine located in the heart of the Rutherford Bench (however defined). It is part of the terroir that first made Napa Valley internationally famous, and inspired André Tchelistcheff to declare "it takes Rutherford Dust to grow great Cabernet." Our illustrious next-vine and nearby neighbors, including Scarecrow (J.J. Cohn), Staglin, and Phelps (Insignia) have burnished the credibility of his proclamation.
Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon.
