(1997 Vintage) Aromas of blueberries, cassis and leather are neatly entwined with the fresh scent of briar and juniper berry. Mouth-filling and bright from start to finish. Serve with ribs, minnestrone and rich pasta dishes.
Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wines(2005 Vintage) Mild and slightly grassy at first sniff, but limited in varietal con- tent, this fairly full-bodied wine picks up a bare touch of richness in its aromas and flavors from a seeming kiss of sweet oak. It is similarly clean and somewhat underplayed on the palate, and it ends on the quiet side.
