  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 87

    Ripe and zesty, with high-toned raspberry and blackberry fruit. Full-bodied, elegant and supple in texture, if leaving you hoping for more depth and complexity. Drink now through 2015. 2,100 cases made.

  • Jancis Robinson | Rating: 17

    Ripe though not jammy. Powerful and dense, with muscular tannins and earthy minerality and tobacco to support the lush cherry liqueur and creamy vanillin notes. Big yet balanced. (LM)

  • 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.
