 Tasted by curtr on 5/7/2014: This wine is showing very little at the moment. I will wait until 2016 to try my other bottle. Hopefully time will improve this wine. (444 views)
 Tasted by vancouvermatt on 10/28/2013 & rated 94 points: My bottle of this, purchased directly from the winery, was open for business after being opened for about an hour. While it could certainly develop from another 1-2 years of bottle age, it's drinking really well now. (766 views)
 Tasted by MC2 Wines on 9/17/2013 & rated 91 points: Winorama with a surprise (engagement)!; 9/15/2013-9/18/2013 (Napa Valley California): The Old Vine is made up of plantings from 1978 - oldest ones that exist on Pritchard Hill. The early taste is mostly just tannin and oak, but it was just released a few days before. There's potential though - some black raspberry started to peek out after a bit of time. I'm holding judgement although hopeful that in some years it'll come all together. (1173 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.
