The Grade Cellars, Kingly Project 2012 is a very limited production Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon - more full-bodied in style than the straight Cabernet bottling.

The Grade Cellars is a a small family-owned producer of handcrafted, ultra premium wines in the Calistoga District of Napa Valley. Winemaker, Thomas Rivers Brown, crafts two boutique Cabernet Sauvignons - both 100% varietals sourced from single vineyards.

“Made by brilliant winemaking consultant Thomas Brown, the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Kingly Project (100 cases; aged 20 months in French oak) comes from the Winfield Vineyard, which sits at the alluvial base of Mt. St. Helena. Sweet cassis, graphite, high-class, unsmoked cigar tobacco and background oak characteristics are present in this full-bodied, opulent, multidimensional, majestic Cabernet Sauvignon. It should age effortlessly for two decades.” Robert Parker

“The Grade's 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Kingly Project emerges from a single block on the property (Block 5). Much more powerful than the straight Cabernet bottling, the Kingly possesses remarkable depth and power, but is also a bit one-dimensional. Still, there is plenty to admire in the wine's jammy dark fruit and overall intensity. Graphite, smoke and pencil shavings add complexity on the ample, enveloping finish.” Anotio Galloni
