The rest is given over to an eclectic blend of native grasses, delicate olive trees, exotic perennials and our famed lavender fields - an inspiriting setting from which the story of our wines takes shape.

Rating: 86/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the November 2010 issue. Blame it on the vintage. Argue, if you wish, that there were not enough Napa wines in this group of 1995s, or simply call it the luck of the draw. Whichever way you lean, and we would suggest that it is a combination of the three, this group of wines showed the least well. Here we have a wine that is tiring and finds its herbal side coming on strongly at the expense of fruit and energy. It has past its prime and will get worse over time.
