"Made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon aged 22 months in 80% new French oak, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Lawrence Estate Grand Klasse has a pretty, lively perfume of ripe black cherries and black raspberries, cedarwood, and leafy herbs." - Jeb Dunnuck

Tasting notes

A mouthwatering combination of currants, plums, sandalwood and smoke. Hints of herbs and black tea muddled with black raspberry, black cherry and a wisp of saffron. Decadently textured with sweet black fruits, spice and a savory finish that goes on for minutes. - Aryn Morell

Production notes

Sourced from Lawrence Vineyards. Fermented in 85% concrete tanks. Aged in 80% new French and American oak for 22 months. 298 cases produced.

Inspired by the French Grand Cru wines, Gard “Grand Klasse” is our reserve-level program, aptly named in reflection of our Scandinavian heritage. It represents the top tier of Gård wines, the best of what our estate vineyard has to offer. Award-winning wines produced by winemaker Aryn Morell to showcase the quality of the Lawrence Vineyards estate. To be designated “Grand Klasse,” each wine must meet strict standards of quality and is blended, bottled and aged with the utmost of care to bring you the very best of our grapes and effort in the bottle.

"Made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon aged 22 months in 80% new French oak, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Lawrence Estate Grand Klasse has a pretty, lively perfume of ripe black cherries and black raspberries, cedarwood, and leafy herbs. It's medium to full-bodied, has nicely integrated acidity, fine tannin, and a balanced, elegant style that's going to allow it to drink nicely for 7-8 years."

All Gård wines are the product of Lawrence Vineyards designated by the Columbia Valley AVA in Royal City, Washington.

Winemaker Aryn Morell, a Washington native, honed his skills in Napa Valley working with some of the country’s most notable producers, including Silver Oak, Joseph Phelps, Quintessa, Husic, Chimney Rock, Chappellet, Stags Leap and countless others in winemaking and the chemical engineering of wine as part of a consulting company for which he worked.

Aryn joined the Gard team as head winemaker in 2011, and spends considerable time in the winery’s estate vineyard with Josh Lawrence, Gard founder and viticulturist.  With an uncompromising attention to detail, Aryn carefully crafts Gard wines with an eye toward the unique expression of terroir of the estate vineyard, and earns frequent accolades and high acclaim for his wines.

In 2014, Aryn and Gard founders Josh and Lisa Lawrence launched a winemaking facility in Walla Walla, M&L Production, where all the Gård wines are produced, bottled and aged. Aryn also makes wine for Matthews Estate, Tenor, Alleromb and Mullan Road, a Washington project for Cakebread Cellars of California.
