Community Tasting Notes (average 92.3 pts. and median of 93 pts. in 4 notes) - hiding notes with no text

 Tasted by beezer6 on 11/3/2012 & rated 94 points: Saturday Tasting Group (Knightsbridge Wine Shop (Northbrook, IL)): Right up my alley. Popped and poured basically. So plump and in your face fruit on the attack.
Blockbuster styling. Ripe and big with dense dark fruit and milk chocolate. Extraction though missing a tad of the mid palate.
Lower acidity but really juicy and elegant with a layered finish. (1671 views)
 Tasted by Burgundy Al on 11/3/2012 & rated 89 points: Another Saturday at Knightsbridge - mostly blind (Northbrook, IL): Tasted double blind. Big, plump and ripe throughout. Powerful blackberry and plum. Able to maintain good balance, but just a bit hollow and short. (1688 views)
 Tasted by phatteus on 8/6/2011 & rated 93 points: Light on oak, but high alcohol (15%). A very delicious wine but the QPR is tough to swallow. Really enjoyed with skirt steak. (1920 views)
 Tasted by jc510 on 9/16/2010 & rated 93 points: Eucalyptus, pencil, cacao on the nose. Full bodied, dark garnet murky, medium stain, spice, cedar, currant jam, hint of blueberry jam, well balanced, with a medium to mild finish. (2100 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.
