    Deep, rich and concentrated, with loamy earth, currant, dried berry, leather, peppery tobacco and sage flavors that are bold and, at points, fleshy in texture. Impressive for its depth, focus and complexity, with plenty of backbone for the cellar.

    big and bold, chalky yet silky, fruit up front and lingers, still young with lots of runway for ample opening

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.
