Dramatically rich and smooth, with very ripe flavors of black cherries, red plums, mocha and sweet herbs, this complex wine also has supple tannins that are thick, but gentle. The finish is long and harmonious. Definitely one of the best “California” appellation reds out there.

All tastings reported in the Buying Guide are performed blind. Typically, products are tasted in peer-group flights of from 5-8 samples. Reviewers may know general information about a flight to provide context—vintage, variety or appellation—but never the producer or retail price of any given selection. When possible, products considered flawed or uncustomary are retasted.
