    A curious mix of varietals, its up-front creamy, oak-driven currant and berry flavors are followed by chewy tannins. Hits a few rough spots on the finish but also shows pretty berry notes. Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese and Petite Sirah.

    The second awesome release from this tiny winery dedicated to producing intriguing wines, the 1995 Bacio Divino (a blend of 66% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Sangiovese, and 12% Petit Sirah) is a formidable wine of exceptional richness, layers of flavor, and a multi-dimensional personality. The color is a deep saturated ruby/purple. The nose offers up juicy/jammy strawberry, black currant, and blackberry notes wrapped with subtle toasty oak. Full-bodied, with outstanding ripeness and purity, a silky texture, and an explosive finish, this is a sumptuous example of what can be done with three grapes rarely blended together in such proportions. By the way, sentimentalists will be moved by the government warning label that reads, |contains sulphites and also some of the winemaker's heart and soul.| This wine should continue to drink well for a decade.

    Cherry and Kirsch but starting to lighten in intensity and finish. Just past it's prime.

    Delicious. Needs time to open up and really shows its stuff paired with food. Rich, medium to full-bodied wine. Sweet blackberry and dark berry followed by cocoa and dark chocolate. Wonderful balance. Velvety tannins give way to a ripe, plush mouthfeel. Coats the palate with a 60 second + finish.

    Fully mature but still a hint of the bright strawberry fruit from the Sangiovese. Unique

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.
