Expert Reviews
  • Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wines
    (2006 Vintage) Loosely defined cherry-like fruit sits a bit stolidly at the heart of this dull, somewhat sluggish Merlot, and, if the wine is relatively rounded and open, it does not have so much to show. Do not count on long keeping here, and plan to drink this one up over the next couple of years.
