    ($125; from the estate vineyard on lower Howell Mountain Road , planted on a combination of decomposed volcanic ash and redder, more nutrient-rich soil) Bright ruby. Deeper and riper on the nose than the Walther River Block, with aromas of cassis, black raspberry and bitter chocolate. Offers good density and depth of flavor, with sweet dark berry flavors complicated by minerals and bitter chocolate. Finishes with big, broad, nicely sweet tannins.

    Firm, ripe and generous, offering rich, vivid blackberry, raspberry and wild berry flavors that are pure and focused, with touches of mineral and black licorice. Full-bodied, this expands on the finish, where the flavors fan out and gain subtle touches.

    The most impressive wine of this trio is the 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Moose Valley Vineyard (100% Cabernet Sauvignon). More blackberry and black currant notes intermixed with notions of licorice, smoke, and plums are followed by a round, generously endowed, medium to full-bodied Cabernet that should last for 10+ years.

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.
