Rating: 84/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the September 2010 issue. If on the one hand high in ripeness, this inconsistent and oddly constructed effort is shot through with a conflicting streak of greenness, and it is both stiff and hot with a decidedly sour turn to its rigid finish.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Further bottle aging can improve this wine.
