    Good red-ruby. Deep, complex aromas of black and red raspberry, minerals and menthol. Big, lush and aromatic, with a texture of liquid silk supported by strong graphite minerality. The wine's medicinal reserve promises a slow evolution in bottle. Finishes impressively long, with very suave tannins that coat the teeth. This was aged in 85% new oak, vs. 100% for the 2006. May well match the superlative 2005.

    The 2007 is a dense bluish purple blend of 47% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Cabernet Franc, 11% Merlot, and 7% Petit Verdot. It displays beautifully perfumed blue and black fruits intermixed with some pen ink, acacia flowers, and black raspberries. Gorgeous, subtle smoke and a floral character follow through into the sweet tannins of this full-bodied, opulent wine, which builds incrementally and has a gloriously luxurious texture. There's not one trace of astringency to this seamlessly wrought wine, which is the liquid equivalent of haute couture. Already drinking well, it should continue to evolve for two decades or more.

    This shows uncommon depth and elegance to its range of flavors. Rich and layered, with tiers of mocha-laced currant, blackberry, sage, mineral and graphite, at points firm and at others supple, ending with touches of tobacco, sage and espresso. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot.

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.
