      Not a terribly strong wine. Light on the nose and no back pallet. Had with Grouper...

    Dr. Madaiah Revana is a successful Cardiologist in Houston whose desire to have a vineyard in Napa Valley was shaped by a visit in 1997. Once he decided on the place, he dove in and hired the best winemaking and vineyard management team available. Vineyard Manager Jim Barbour has his boot-prints all over the Valley and his name alone instantly commands notice for a new property. Paired with one of the most respected winemakers in the world, Heidi Peterson Barrett, big things were naturally expected. Barbour developed the site into an eight-block mix of four different classic Bordeaux varieties with the exception of Merlot. Peterson Barrett's resume was already brimming with successes elsewhere, including Paradigm, Dalla Valle, Jones Family, Screaming Eagle, Grace Family, Amuse Bouche, Showket and her own La Sirena.

    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.
