(From 1999 Vintage) Allspice accents highlight smoky boysenberry and dried cherry aromas. A supple tannic backbone preserves bright fruit flavors enhanced by a kiss of oak. Try with spicy grilled ribs or paella.

Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wines(From 2004 Vintage) Showing the toasty, herbal, fruity, rich complexity that is part of the better offerings from this fabled producer, the wine is supple and a even a bit plush at the front of the palate and firms up a touch at the finish. Its milk chocolaty richness and cherryish fruit stand it in good stead and promise to see the wine past its edge of curt tightness at present.
