    One of the most complete wines in the range, the 2013 Pinot Noir Estate Block 8 possesses gorgeous depth and overall structure. Sweet red cherry, plum, mint, rose petal and spice notes are all pushed forward. After an initial blast of intensity, the Block 8 shuts down quickly in the glass, which is probably a good thing for its potential longevity. Readers will have to be patient, as the Block 8 needs at least a few years in bottle. The wait should be worth it; there is plenty to like.

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.
