Anyone fond of power-packed, oaky California will go absolutely gaga over this gem from one of this country's best wineries. Sweet vanilla, buttercream, bread dough and pronounced wood on the nose and an impressive flavor-to-body ratio make this an unbridled winner. Deft and flawless, this is a treat to drink. Filled with life, it will reward those who buy it by the case and consume it over the ensuing 24 months.
