Expert Reviews

88 Points | International Wine Cellar , September/October 2002

(tasted at Dominus) Good full red. Expressive aromas of plum, currant, maple syrup and licorice. Leanish and firm on the palate, with raw currant and tobacco leaf notes. Losing its flesh. Narrows toward the end, finishing with somewhat hard-edged tannins but good persistence. Seems slightly past its best.

From Mount St. Helena to the city of Napa, the valley is defined by two north-south ridgelines of the Coast Range Mountains.
