    A brilliant effort as well is the 2014 Chardonnay Torchiana Beresini Vineyard. This is a dry-farmed, 3-acre vineyard block that is 30 years old in 2014, which is planted with Larry Hyde's selection of the Wente clone. This is a killer Chardonnay that is showing even better than it was last year. Crushed rock/wet gravel intermixed with orange marmalade, white peach, pineapple and honeysuckle are all present in this full-bodied, dense and concentrated Chardonnay. I wouldn't be surprised to see this Chardonnay evolve for 6-10 years.

    Too tight right now... going to be very nice, though, once it opens up. Let it sit until 2017.

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.
