Community Tasting History

Community Tasting Notes (average 92 pts. and median of 92 pts. in 2 notes) - hiding notes with no text

 Tasted by andtheodor on 5/17/2015 & rated 92 points: Smells intensely of old cedar chests, antiques, brown sugar, sawn wood, cherry, mint. Decent acidity, and a faint tug of tannin at the back of the throat. Light and hollowed palate, but persistent and sweetening after it's swallowed. Cigar smoke, fir, coastal forest rain now. Fun to experience. (179 views)

California Wines (Wine Institute of California)

California is one of the most diverse wine regions in the world, with almost 100 grape varieties grown in over 100 viticultural areas, including dozens of ­different microclimates and soil types, as well as a very individualistic set of ­winemakers, many with international experience, which adds to and deepens that diversity.
