Connoisseurs' Guide to California WinesEnormously rich in both ripe, concentrated black cherry fruit and in toasty, creamy oak, the nose of this medium-full-bodied effort jumps out of the glass and suggests that a bold, fairly dramatic wine is going to follow in the mouth. Instead, there is far more refinement than expected, and while there are also deep, fleshy notes at entry, it is the wine's balance and palate-cleansing acid that ultimately tells the tale here. Look for this one to grow into a smoother stance over time.
