Expert Reviews
  • Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wines
    Fans of weighty, fully ripened red wines will find plenty to like here, and, if definitely on the slightly too tannic and slightly too hot side of the varietal spectrum, this rich effort makes up for its coarseness with lots of extracted, black cherry fruit, generous oak and involving complexity. It is not now nor will it ever be a wine of refinement, but it is a powerful, ageworthy Merlot that will develop for a half-dozen years.
