Winemaker's Notes

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.
