Connoisseurs' Guide to California WinesToasty oak and ripe, rich black cherry and sweet plum aromas make a positive first impression here, and the wine follows suit on the palate with nicely concentrated, medium-density flavors. Tannin and overlying woody notes gain the upper hand as the wine finishes, but a few years of quiet cellaring will help it open up and smooth out.
