Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wines(2003 Vintage) 7% Petit Verdot; 3% Merlot. A bit off the pace previously set by the Cabernets of this usually reliable producer, this very ripe, mildly herbal wine is hesitant in its offering of clearly defined fruit and is instead slightly fat, a bit dry and essentially keyed on simple ripeness.
