    ($36) Inky purple. Deep and rich on the nose, with powerful blueberry and dark cherry scents and a suggestion of iodine. Smoky dark fruit flavors are firmed by solid tannins and pick up a peppery note on the finish. This opened up with some air time, taking on a brighter red fruit tone.

    One of the pioneer Rhone Rangers (although he has rarely promoted himself as such), Dehlinger's 2004 Syrah Goldridge Vineyard boasts a deep ruby/purple color along with a sweet perfume of bacon fat, blackberries, charcoal, and meat. Luscious, with excellent fruit, low acidity, and a heady finish, it will provide enjoyment over the next 5-6 years.

    medium bodied but balanced and very food friendly. Dark cherry fruit.

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.
