(From 2009 Vintage) Deliciously fruity, with chocolate notes and acidity. The wine has dense but soft tannins that merge seamlessly into the black fruits. It is ripe, sweet, densely juicy.
Alcohol Percentage: 12.5 %

Not as big as you'd expect yet it needs to breathe. Rich and full bodied
soft at start，spicy after，light color，dry, M-body
A wonderful, bordeaux blend, very approachable
Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wines(From 2005 Vintage) Given its vintage and the success of its neighbors, this slightly underfilled offering must be considered as something of disap-pointnment. Narrow and fairly tight-fisted, but never suggesting that it has the fruit that will allow it to blossom with time, it is instead a bit thin and fades away early.
