| 2001 Grgich Hills Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 3 L x 1 Btl|
Napa Valley, California
Miljenko “Mike” Grgich first gained international recognition at the celebrated “Paris Tasting” of 1976. Then, in a now-historic blind tasting, a panel of eminent French judges swirled, sniffed, and sipped an array of the fabled white Burgundies of France and a small sampling of upstart Chardonnays from the Napa Valley. When their scores were tallied, the French judges were shocked: they had chosen Mike’s 1973 Chateau Montelena Chardonnay as the finest white wine in the world. Mon Dieu! The results stunned the international wine establishment and immediataely earned Mike a reputation as one of the greatest winemakers in the world.
Cabernet goes well with beef, lamb and goose. It also does well with brie, cheddar cheese and chocolate
Cabernet is the king of wines. Full flavored, full bodied, full tannins. Cabernet is for people who like big wines. California Cabernets are the biggest and boldest, French Cabernets (Often from Bordeaux) tend to be more mellow and subtle.
