    ($175) Bright, deep ruby-red. Expressive aromas of plum syrup, spicecake, chocolate and licorice. Ripe and harmonious, with a captivating gravelly quality and a medicinal reserve to go with its plum and black cherry fruit. Showing less baby fat and obvious sweetness than the Vineyard 29 cabernet from the same winery, but offers a lovely sugar/acid balance. Finishes with building tannins and firm grip. Fairly backward, structured wine but a bit less bound-up than I would have predicted a year ago.

    The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Aida Vineyard (90% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot aged 20 months in 100% French oak) is a La Mission Haut-Brion look-alike. Burning ember, scorched earth, blackberry, smoked herb, and sweet cassis fruit characteristics are all present in this full-bodied, dense, concentrated offering. With a whopping finish as well as great balance and purity, it should drink well for 20+ years.

    Great concentration. More balanced fruit and acidity, great 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.
