Napa Valley, California
Chateau la Grande Roche Cabernet Sauvignon is the second label of superstar Napa winemaker Ric Forman at a fraction of the price! 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from the Forman Estate Vineyard. St. Helena Appellation-all hillside vineyards surrounding the winery at the base of Howell Mountain. Traditional farming in a Bordelaise sense. Only 500 cases produced.
Grande Roche has a very pretty dark red color with brilliant clarity with nuances of licorice & currant on the nose. Dusty herbal fruitiness with tobacco and cedar. Firm tannins, healthy acidity, power and persistence. Aged in 100% Bordeaux coopers.
Enjoy Chateau la Grande Roche Cab over the next 6-8 years with a NY strip steak, roast lamb, rich vegetable dishes and aged cheeses.
