    This is crafted in a lighter and more elegant style and features a layered, ripe and expressive nose of cranberry and raspberry aromas that lead to nicely rich, round and supple barely middle weight flavors that possess a sappy mouth feel on the textured and lingering finish. This is a largely fruit-driven effort that could easily be approached now. Note that I was a bit surprised by a touch of finishing warmth, given the very reasonably alcohol level indicated on the label; decanting is recommended as the natural carbon dioxide present in the wine is meant to preserve its delicate character. Unfined and unfiltered

    Bright, classic pinot nose of sour cherry, seems to be thinning out and losing steam but very smooth. After it was open for nearly an hour it starting showing forth more, deeper complex flavors. Nonetheless, easy to drink and very approachable.

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.
