The famous ‘Rutherford Bench’ is steeped in history, and loaded with some of Napa’s most iconic producers. Here, surrounded by one of Joseph Phelps Insignia-designated sites, the Inglenook Estate, Staglin Family, and the ‘First Growth’ Scarecrow (J.J. Cohn) Vineyard, lies a postage stamp sized diamond – Greer Vineyard.
At just 2 hectares in size, Greer Vineyard is about 1/5 the size of Scarecrow. It was purchased by Rob and Cyd Greer in the early 1980s and quickly became important source for Opus One. They chose the auspicious 2007 vintage to make their debut, and in short time Greer Cabernet Sauvignon has attracted the attention of serious collectors, as well as some of the biggest names in the Valley.
This is truly a wine for the ages, and there’s no doubt whatsoever that we are witnessing the emergence of a new legend of the Rutherford Bench. Simply stunning.
