  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 91

    ($39; 14.9% alcohol; aged in 500-liter puncheons, 25% of which were new) Deep ruby-red. Sweet, crushed berries, roast coffee, game and an exotic whiff of orange peel on the nose. Sweet and thick but given verve and definition by racy acidity. This has excellent intensity. Long, slow-mounting finish features building tannins and flavors of black fruits. This should reward four or five years of aging.

    The deep ruby/purple-hued 2002 Syrah Estate reveals vivid aromatics of acacia flowers, blackberries, cassis, and creosote. Elegant and flavorful, with good underlying acidity, it is a vibrant, vivacious style of Syrah with considerable length.

  • 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.
