Connoisseurs' Guide to California WinesEarly in our writing careers, we visited some of the most famous French producers, and we have always remembered the vintner who told us that he uses extra oak in weak vintages because the fruit cannot carry the wine by itself. This wine might seem to have been made according to that philosophy except that it has always been made with generous lashings of oak, and, in this less than stellar vintage, it comes across as ripe, dry and far too drenched in wood.
