Winemaker's Notes

The biggest, boldest Cali's to date, this wine offers up a hedonistic nose of cherry, brambly blackberry, pine, orange peel and cinnamon to awake your senses. A truly unforgettable palate suggests raspberries and blackberries with an allusion to wild mint and thyme. Finishing with anise and molasses, this wine speaks to the incredible bounty of the remarkable 2006 vintage. A wonderful glass to sip own its on, this wine has just the right amount of acidity and structure to compliment robust lamb, beef and game dishes.

Critical Acclaim

"A home run. Given extra bottle age, this is drinking optimally at the moment, with a spicy, brambly nose mixing blackberries, mint and chocolate-covered cherries. There’s a scent of fresh cut wood also, and a mouthful of fruit and barrel flavors that are both nicely integrated and complementary. The long finish lingers into a resonant note of black tea.
