Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wines51% Merlot; 43% Cabernet Sauvignon; 6% Other. In the top vintages, there are always going to be bargains to be had in the best of the lower-priced Bordeaux, and this wine is certainly one of them. Its Merlot aspects roar through in aromas that are first and foremost oriented to red cherries and creamy oak, and the wine makes good use of its Cabernet Sauvignon portion to add in pleasing suggestions of currants and brambles. It is fairly high in tannin and will age for a decade or more.
