  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 91

    Generous blackberry, black licorice, anise and sage notes give this a deep, intense core of flavor, matched by chewy, gripping tannins. Syrah, Grenache and Mourvedre. Best from 2016 through 2028. 338 cases made.

  • Wine Advocate | Rating: 97

    Just bottled five weeks ago, the 2012 Terry Hoage Vineyard (330 cases) is a thrilling blend of 51% Syrah, 31% Grenache and 18 % Mourvedre. It has an up front approachable and sexy feel in its cherry blossom and black raspberry fruit, crushed flowers and spice aromas and flavors. Full-bodied, concentrated and with sweet tannin, it's the most ready-to-go in the lineup, yet will still have 10-12 years of longevity.

    Really good
    Author: Patrick

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.
