    Reminiscent of a great vintage of Chateau Margaux, Clark-Claudon's 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate boasts notes of flowers, graphite, black currants, raspberries, and plums. This tannic, backward 2001 possesses a Bordeaux-like structure as well as a deep, rich, full-bodied personality. Still playing it close to the vest, give it 3-4 more years of bottle age and drink it over the following two decades.

    Dark colored wine with a smoky nose of licorice and plum. Good fruit concentration with toasty oak and decent length. In context, a rather disappointing effort from Clark Claudon.

Tom and Laurie Clark staked their dream to a small parcel on the east side of Howell Mountain and produced their first vintage in 1993. The winemaking style is elegant in its subtlety, and reflects the parcel's unique microclimate. Douglas Danielak is winemaker.

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.
