    ($25) Medium red. Musky, somewhat autumnal aromas of redcurrant, coffee, leather and smoked meat. Sweet on entry, then a bit rustic and leathery in the middle palate. Offers decent texture but finishes a bit dry and warm.

    Distinctly ripe yet elegant dark pinot fruit aromas are framed by fairly heavy toast notes and hints of menthol that are followed by very rich, sweet and full-bodied plum and mocha-infused flavors that retain an attractive texture and suppleness. Given the considerable alcohol this is carrying, it's surprising that there is not more finishing warmth and to its credit there is good if not sensational balance. The bold flavors are sufficiently accessible to permit this to be drunk now or held for 2 to 4 years of further development.

  • With an impressive portfolio of some of the best Pinot Noir vineyards in California, Adam and Dianna Lee have created quite a sensation. The Lees source from 27 different vineyards, and work closely with their growers to ensure the conditions in the vineyard lay a strong foundation for the resulting wines. Vineyards of note include Cargasacchi, Clos Pepe, Pisoni, and the famed Garys' and Rosella's. From these vineyards, individual blocks and clones are vinified separately to give more flexibility at blending time. All the Pinots are bottled unfined and unfiltered.

    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.
