"Although Grgich Hills is certified Biodynamic, I suspect it's Mike Grgich's overall commitment to quality that makes this wine sing. Anyone looking for a great example of the oft-overused description of balance should taste Grgich's 2007 Cabernet. Yes, it conveys ripe flavors as you'd expected from a wine with a 14.8% stated alcohol. But it's fresh and lively, with engaging savory notes and finely polished tannins that give structure without being astringent or aggressive. As it expands in the glass, it's both juicy and chewy. Each sip conveys additional nuances. It's a delight to find such power and finesse."
"Bright medium red-ruby. Aromas and flavors of currant, tobacco leaf, fresh herbs, menthol and oak. The palate offers good juicy energy, with redder fruits, especially raspberry, emerging with air. Pepper and herb notes contribute definition to this essentially supple wine. Finishes with a fine spine of dusty tannins that will require at least six or seven years of cellaring." -89 points - Stephen Tanzer - International Wine Cellar
"A savory style that's complex and layered, with firm, full-bodied notes of spice, cedar, dried berry, mineral and sage. Ends with a pleasant earthiness. Drink now through 2017. 14,540 cases made. -JL" -87 points Wine Spectator
