What We’re Drinking – Rocca Family Vineyards 2013 Grigsby Cabernet Sauvignon


Rocca’s Grigsby Cabernet is big, beautiful, and delightfully complex. The color is very dark, opaque but for the very edges. Huge aromas roil up in waves – blackberries, black currant, and eucalyptus. The palate opens in layers, starting with black cherry, then shifting to black fruit on the mid-palate, adding eucalyptus and tobacco as it moves to the finish. Mouth-coating tannins are balanced by a good acid backbone. Drink with a New York strip. Highly Recommended. 91 points. DBH
