90 Points | International Wine Cellar , November/December 2011

(42% syrah, 34% grenache, 22% petite sirah and 2% viognier):  Good dark red.  Cherry liqueur, raspberry, licorice, peppery spices and menthol on the expressive nose.  Juicy and downright gulpable, with light spicy lift and a hint of exotic orange zest lifting the black and red fruit flavors.  Tastes lighter than its 14.4% would suggest.  The dry, intense finish features fine, light tannins and a distinctly savory quality to the cherry and dark berry flavors.  (ST)

This opened up more slowly than I expected. Patience, however, was rewarded after a half hour of the wine being in the glass. Even with the Stelvin closure, alittle extra cellar time might be called for.

About California

It is remarkable that an industry essentially less than a half-century old could capture the attention of the American wine-buying public to the degree that California has. Powerful consumer interest in California wine is driven by two major factors. The more obvious reason is that California's best wines, which come from grapes grown in...
