    The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Materium is a beautiful example of a wine with extraordinary purity and delineation. It possesses copious quantities of charcoal, barbecue smoke, graphite, blackberries, blueberries and creme de cassis. Full-bodied power is clearly on display, but the wine has a purity and balance that are sensational to behold. This classic Cabernet is a superstar of the vintage.

    (these vines above Dalla Valle were planted in 1994): Good deep ruby-red. High-toned aromas and flavors of black fruits, licorice, pepper, baking spices and tobacco leaf; all cabernet sauvignon but has the aromatic lift of cabernet franc. Densely packed, seamless and sweet, with idiosyncratic peppery piquancy and firm acidity. Finishes with broad, building tannins and excellent length. Consulting winemaker Thomas Brown told me this bottling routinely has the lowest pH (in this case 3.55) of all the cabernets he works with.

    Full-bodied, with dark berry flavors and pretty oak shadings, offering a mix of blackberry, plum, licorice and spice flavors, followed by a tight, tapered 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.
