The name implies that the wine is “worth the effort”; taste it and we think you'll agree. It's from Patrick Campbell of California, and it comes from 80-year-old vines. The concentration and power are up front, as are the oak and tannin. The nose offers dried fruit, cedar, espresso and mocha, and it tastes of ripe black fruit. Just 300 cases made in conjunction with Achaval-Ferrer.
