Winemaker's Notes

Offers aromatic brightness and fullness in the mouth with plenty of raspberry, blackberry, cola and a richness of fruit; showing more mature notes of tobacco, herbs and minerals and a core of sweetness. This generously proportioned wine offers a long, lingering after taste.

  • Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wines
    (From 1997 Vintage) A bit of dusty spice tags this one as just a wee bit different in the nose, but the wine's deep, curranty fruit, accents of milk chocolate and close-to-plush feel are very much the stuff of its winemaker and provenance. While never abrasive, this year's version comes with an extra measure of fine-grained structural tannins, and the wine will benefit from be buried in the back of the cellar for at least another five years. Originally reviewed at **.
