    ($90) Deep red color. Loamy red berry and cherry aromas expand with air, picking up strong floral and smoky mineral qualities. The floral note gains strength with air and carries onto the palate, adding complexity to the wine's deep, chewy cherry and dark berry flavors. This is like two wines in one, with a high-pitched nose and a deeper, weightier palate. The finish strongly echoes the cherry and mineral notes and refuses to let up. This wine has more Swan clone than the other pinots.

    Firm and complex in aroma, this is tighter and more compact on the palate, showing dried currant and berry fruit, with touches of sage, underbrush and mineral. The tannins are chewy.

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.
