  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 91

    (65% grenache, 24% mourvedre and 11% syrah) Vivid red. Sexy, highly perfumed aromas of red berries, pungent flowers and incense are deepened by cola and licorice notes. The palate offers deeper blackberry and blueberry, with tangy minerals adding vivacity. Becomes spicier on the finish, leaving behind a suave trail of floral pastille and bitter berry skin notes. Pretty sexy stuff.

    Delicious, with rich, ripe, elegant wild berry, black cherry, blueberry and spicy, peppery flavors that are complex and persistent, ending with a long, lingering finish. Grenache, Mourvedre and Syrah.

    The 2006 Sticks and Stones (a combination of 65% Grenache, 24% Mourvedre, and 11% Syrah) exhibits a Chateau Rayas-like nose of kirsch liqueur, licorice, and flowers. There is super fruit on the attack, entry, mid-palate, and finish. Beautifully elegant, pure, and already complex, this 380-case cuvee should drink well for 7-8 years.

    Dark red. Typical Grenache flavors with the kirsch, thick berries and strong fruit profile. Lavender and other floral aromas mix with the fruits for a great finish. Delicious. Long finish

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.
