 Tasted by Tonythefish on 11/12/2014 & rated 89 points: See prior notes - I don't think this has a 10 year drinking window - really nice now and for 1-2 more years (620 views)
 Tasted by Tonythefish on 6/8/2014 & rated 90 points: Not as much chocolate as 2006 or 2007, but still very easy to drink and enjoy (1342 views)

 Tasted by Tonythefish on 6/7/2013 & rated 90 points: Lots of chocolate - great with brownies (2557 views)
 Tasted by Tonythefish on 4/7/2013 & rated 92 points: A chocolate bar in a glass - and I dont even like chocolate. Smooth well rounded wine with vanilla and coffee overtones, but the chocolate comes through big time. John Caldwell success once again (2429 views)
 Tasted by Jab_343434 on 2/20/2013 & rated 91 points: Great bottle of wine. Drinking well. Needs about a half hour to open up. (2538 views)

 Tasted by Jasonbaker75 on 11/30/2012 & rated 100 points: I am a big fan of everything John Caldwell puts out. I saw this on the menu and I had to have it. Unfortunately at $117 a bottle I think I overpaid. That's what I get for ordering Napa wines in Texas. (1773 views)

A full bodied kitchen sink blend, with blueberries, black currants, herbs and white pepper, finish of dusty chocolate and spice. This is the fifth vintage I have tried, all have been very good, cool bottle design. (2178 views)

California

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.
