  • Wine Advocate | Rating: 98

    In addition to these new releases, I was also able to taste through a number of older vintages, including the 2001 Albino, 2006 Hoodoo Man, 2003 The Inaugural, 2004 Ode to E, 1998 E Raised, 2001 On Your Toes, 2005 Nail in My Cranium and 2007 Syrah Dangerous Birds. To say I came away impressed would be an understatement. Anyone who claims this big, rich style can-t age needs to taste these wines. I opted to just list my scores for the older releases as I find Bob-s initial write-ups spot on.

    ($200; includes 4.5% grenache and 2.5% viognier; 15.8% alcohol) Dark purple. Powerful blackberry and cassis fruit aromas are complicated by licorice, woodsmoke and exotic Asian spices. Juicy, concentrated and sharply focused, with impressive intensity to its pure dark berry and spice flavors. This very youthful, densely packed wine manages to be both broad and light on its feet, with outstanding clarity and appealing spiciness. Finishes with lovely lingering florality and mineral-driven persistence.

    Aromas of fresh leather and blueberries with hints of licorice. Full-bodied, with firm tannins and a long finish. Intense black pepper and spice. Great finish on this. Amazing complexity. Like 1978 or 1961 La Chapelle. Amazing. This will improve for decades.

  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 95

    Starts out sleek and elegant, with a subtle mix of charcoal, smoke, dried berry, mocha, coconut and subtle pomegranate notes that are at times explosive yet restrained, leading to a long, rather amazing, 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.
