    An exciting wine, rich, intense and complex, with beautifully defined cherry and huckleberry fruit. The flavors are ripe but balanced and are accented by licorice, smoky sage and fresh mineral notes that linger and linger. Zinfandel, Syrah and Mourvedre. 580 cases made.

    The 2007 Problem Child (72% Zinfandel, 16% Syrah, and 12% Mourvedre) showcases TrevisanƒA?A?s intelligent blending where he takes fruit from some of the areaƒA?A?s finest old vine, dry-farmed Zinfandel vineyards and blends it with Rhone varietals, which results in a far more complex wine than if it were 100% Zinfandel. The dense ruby/purple-tinged 2007 Problem Child exhibits plenty of berry fruit, pepper, garrigue, forest floor, and earthy notes, full body, great fruit purity, density, and glycerin, and plenty of freshness as well as vivacity. This cuvee possesses nearly 16% natural alcohol, but you would never know that given its freshness.

    luscious. floats you off planet but then provides a sensible anchor somewhere high above. sweet up front, blend of high notes, fading into lingering earthiness. After breathing for an hour the up front sweetness began to mingle with the earthiness.

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.
