Product Details

RP: “Greer’s 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon features perfumed, almost rose-like scents layered atop cherries and cassis, with a savory foundation of gently dusty earth. A blend of the tiny vineyard’s three Cabernet clones (Clone 4, Wiemer, See), it’s medium to full-bodied, supple, velvety and long, A lovely wine from start to finish, it’s impeccably balanced, elegant and harmonious.” 98/100
With only about three acres under vine, Greer will be a new name to many consumers, despite having been in existence as a wine label since the 2007 vintage. Located on Manley Lane in Rutherford, across from Staglin and abutting Morisoli and Joseph Phelps’s Manley Lane vineyard (an important Insignia component), it’s a fabulous location, and with the wine made by Aaron Pott, I was blown away by the quality of the 2018 and 2019 vintages.”

Jeb Dunnuck: “I was able to taste two vintages of the Greer Cabernet, both brilliant wines coming from a tiny three-acre vineyard on the Rutherford Bench. The wines have been made by Aaron Pott since 2001. Starting with the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon, this beauty offers incredible purity and precision in its cassis, candied violets, green tobacco, and lead pencil-like aromatics, and it certainly wouldn’t be out of place in a lineup of top First Growths from Bordeaux. On the palate, it’s medium to full-bodied and has a concentrated, rich mid-palate, beautiful tannins, and a great finish. This is classic 2018 in its purity, freshness, and structure. It needs 4-6 years of bottle age and will have 30 years of longevity. It will most likely merit a triple-digit rating at maturity.” 97+/100
