  • Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wines
    (From 2006 Vintage) 70% Cabernet Sauvignon; 22% Merlot; 5% Cabernet Franc; 3% Petit Verdot. It is easy to be drawn in by this bottling's complex aromas and nicely layered flavors of currants, cherries and stony soil, and the wine conveys a good sense of richness and depth, but intrusive tannins presently dry out its finish and mandate at least five years of age.
