What a dramatic wine. We recently shared this vintage with friends during a backyard dinner party. After the first sips, nobody spoke for several minutes. It's so complex no one knew what say. I love the dark fruit and vanilla spice on the tounge and lingering toasty finish.

In a blind tasting, this wine did not fool many tasters when served blind. It was quickly identified as a California wine despite the fact that it is made in a Bordeaux-like style.

Winemaker's Notes:

Cooler-than-normal winter weather led to a late bud break. Bloom and berry set were affected by cool temperatures and rain in late May, resulting in a reduced crop. Normal summer temperatures were followed by ideal harvest conditions. Wines are aromatic, rich, and resilient.
