The Institution was one of the highlights of my trip to Napa in October last year. The packaging, which is BAD ASS, had not even been finalized yet when I visited, but it was the wine itself that got my attention. With 20+ tastings on my trip -  which included Harlan and Bryant, these wines stood out as some of my favorites. 100% mailing list only, I managed to get them to agree to do a GRW exclusive and give me access to 10 collection cases.

 

Samples for the team arrived in the office early last week, and we unanimously applauded this as some of the best young Napa juice, we have tasted in the 2018 vintage. 

 

“We were literally doing cartwheels around the office when we tasted these. We all had our different favorites, but unanimously agreed they were all exceptional” Garrick at GRW 

 

This could honestly be some of Russel's best work in our opinion this year. That is right...Russell Bevan is the winemaker on this project and working with his favorite fruit  from Houyi, Tench, ERBA, and Sugarloaf Mountain.  



The story behind Intuition is to create a world class wines with ZERO compromise. They source the best fruit they can find and hired arguably one of the best winemakers in the business. If you are wondering..."what is with the scissors!?" After a year of having their wines down in barrel, they realized that they were still locking their winery doors with a pair of Scissors. That is what inspired the ERBA vineyard label band one-of a-kind packaging.



Now I could go on forever on how these wines are distinct and easily go toe-to-toe with any of the heavy hitters in Napa, but I will just leave a description of each wine below and trust me when I say this is legit. Do not miss this opportunity to secure another GRW first! - Only 10 collection cases available.

 

Wine will be available to ship from the 5 April.

 

2018 NAPA VALLEY PROPRIETARY RED BLEND



A barrel selection from four vineyard sites, this wine represents our philosophy that at times the sum can be better than the parts. A combination of Erba, Houyi, Tench, and Sugarloaf Mtn. vineyards – this wine seamlessly brings together Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Petite Verdot. Aged for 22 months in 100% New French oak, this wine leaps from the glass with notes of black currant, butter brushed pastry crust, and graphite. Full of energy, this wine carries mouthwatering acidity that begs for another sip. Polished and plush, yet dense and packed, this wine’s refined tannins coat the mouth revealing its seductive nature.

2018 ERBA Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon



Combining seven blocks of this rocky mountain side vineyard spread across a 1200 foot change in elevation, this Cabernet Sauvignon quickly reveals its power and focus. Dark chocolate, espresso, and cigar box all support a core of blueberry and black licorice. Aged in 100% new French oak for 22 months, this wine offers amazing texture and mouthfeel that unveil the hedonistic nature of this rugged vineyard site. While this wine has the structure to age for decades, its polished tannins allow for it to be enjoyed in its youth.

2018 Houyi Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon



Like a classic Prima Ballerina, the Houyi Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon has an understated power and purity that defines this amazing site atop Pritchard Hill. Aged for 22 months in 100% new French oak, the refined nature of this wine is displayed through its core of espresso rubbed strawberries, white flowers, and graphite. Seamless, this wine tip toes across the palate with balance and grace, all while highlighting its focus and intensity.
