  • Wine Advocate | Rating: 91

    The 2006 exhibits beautiful notes of chocolate, mocha, espresso roast, black cherries, and black currants. Deep and rich, with none of the tough tannins that can be found in 2006 Bordeaux varietals, its finish is deep, lush, and opulent.

  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 92

    Intense and well-focused, showing layered aromas of blackberry, espresso and toasty herbs, with complex flavors of briary plum, sage and hints of leather. The tannins are firm but ripe, with a hint of heat on the finish.

  • Heidi Barrett and John Schwartz, created this joint venture, aiming for the Pomerol-style of Bordeaux. This inspired team has constructed brilliant Merlot-driven wines that rival both Napa and Bordeaux counterparts. Barrett crafts wines with the rich purity and complex charm of Merlot with a judicious dollop of Cabernet Franc. Past clients include Screaming Eagle, Grace Family and Vineyard 29 and current clients include Jones Family and Revana Family Vineyards.

    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.
