Community Tasting Notes (average 83.5 pts. and median of 83 pts. in 3 notes) - hiding notes with no text

 Tasted by BTBrown on 12/1/2012 & rated 80 points: just OK, some fruit, a little on the dry side and an abrupt finish. (1268 views)
 Tasted by jszczerb on 12/14/2009: The first few sips prior to eating were very uninteresting. At first like a light tea, but with the meal the wine opened up and had some spice, raisin, and minerality. (2105 views)
 Tasted by RossM on 7/31/2007 & rated 87 points: For a wine of this age from CA, I was pleasantly surprised that it wasn't dead. That said, there was a definite 'figgyness', an element of really ripe fruit or high pH. This pruney/fig note continued to blossom in the glass over the next 2o to 30 minutes. Beneath these older fruit notes were interesting elements of true cabernet sauvignon: still some tannin, good acid balance and length. I wouldn't wait on this one any longer. (2588 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.
