Expert Reviews
  • Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wines
    If bake shop smells of vanilla and pastry crust are what passes for oak, then this wine has hit the jackpot. Otherwise, its overly woody, cedary, almost sawdusty overlays and ripe cherry notes that lack depth and varietal precision leave it wandering in the back roads of the vinous landscape.
