Overview of the Wine
Greer Vineyard is a small, three acre domaine located in the heart of the Rutherford Bench (however defined). It is part of the terroir that first made Napa Valley internationally famous, and inspired André Tchelistcheff to declare "it takes Rutherford Dust to grow great Cabernet." Our illustrious next-vine and nearby neighbors, including Scarecrow (J.J. Cohn), Staglin, and Phelps (Insignia) have burnished the credibility of his proclamation.

Grape / Blend
Cabernet Sauvignon

Winemaker's Tasting Notes
Our inaugural wine was the 2007, an auspicious first vintage released in August, 2011. Our fruit is sourced solely from our family vineyard, which produces 100% cabernet sauvignon from 101-14 rootstock grafted with clone 4, the See clone, and the Wiemer clone. Aaron Pott is our winemaker. His broad global experience, skill, and innate talent have created wine rivaling his flamboyant predictions - and exceeding our unspoken hopes.

98 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 
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.

97+ Points - 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 Points - James Suckling 
Floral and berry aromas with fresh plums and sliced oranges. Complex fruit character. Medium to full body with tannins that spread across the palate. You know they are there, but you don’t feel the texture. Lovely, perfumed and perfectly ripe fruit character. Pure cabernet sauvignon.
