Well, you know I stereotype California wines automatically because it seems they are mostly about quantity. Well, when I went to visit this vineyard I was so amazed to hear that they only make a certain amount and that the best winemakers of the region got together and created something very special. I ended up purchasing half a case, and that's all I could get from them. Very much in demand and I can see why. Rich, bold, expressive, smooth and with a great nose. If you like bourdeaux you will love this one. It's worth every penny.
