    ($75; a blend of cabernet sauvignon, merlot and cabernet franc); Deep ruby-red. Black raspberry, dark chocolate and licorice on the nose. Sweet, lush and creamy, with dark berry and licorice flavors complicated by some herbal nuances of menthol and tobacco leaf. Firmly structured wine, finishing with fine, dusty tannins and traces of licorice, spice and tobacco leaf.

    The 2002 Terezetto, a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc, exhibits a deep ruby/purple hue, a plush, opulent palate, and unmistakable elegance as well as complexity. With attractive, complex aromatics as well as impeccable balance, it is a singular statement of French-inspired California winemaking. I especially admired its long finish, and notes of cedar, spice box, black currants, and cherries. It should drink well for 10-15 years.

    The Terzetto blend is a fantastic red blend. The aromas were big and fruit driven. Substantial amounts of complex cherry, plum, and cedar notes. The tannis have softened since the last bottle and which brough a nice smooth finish.

    This is drinking beautifully right now. Beware - throwing sediment. Garnet color, cedar, tobacco, crushed leaves, red fruits, all well integrated, with sweetish tannins on the back. Drink 'em if ya got 'em and enjoy!

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.
