  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 77

    Amber-edged red-ruby color. Raw cherry syrup and a pronounced vegetal quality on the nose. Hard, minty and green, with no sweetness or flesh. Tastes distinctly acidified and finishes with drying tannins.
    Author: Stephen Tanzer
    Issue: September/October 2002
  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 95

    A rich core of focused, concentrated currant, black cherry and plum flavors balances beautifully with finely integrated tannins, marking this as a potentially magnificent wine with cellaring until 1995 to 2000. Has the muscle and grace to evolve into a majestic wine, even though it has the fruit to drink now. 11,000 cases made.

  • California is the heartland of wine production in the US, and the state that brought prestige to American wine thanks to the pioneers who built early wineries like Staglin, Beringer, Ridge, Mayacamas and Chateau Montelena in the 1800s. Its large geographic area ensures a great diversity in growing sites, varieties grown, and quality levels. Generalizations about the state's wines have numerous exceptions; however, a few key facts generally hold true—ample sunshine, dry weather during the growing season, and moderate winters prevail. Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon continue to dominate the state's production—albeit in continually smaller percentages, as growers continue to diversify. More than 100 different varieties can be found throughout the state.
