Community Tasting Notes (average 88.9 pts. and median of 91 pts. in 9 notes) - hiding notes with no text

 Tasted by Wine12345 on 3/8/2014 & rated 81 points: Sorry to say, but this wine is well past it's prime. (358 views)
 Tasted by Dexter Morgan on 11/11/2013 & rated 91 points: Deep ruby core, bricking red/orange on the rim. This is old school, juicy, but youthfully dry. The cherry, black raspberry, and red currant fruit is secondary to the woodsy, earthy notes of conifer, pencil shavings, and cigar box. Hints of basement must reminds you this is an older vintage. It took about two hours before it started to open up, giving air a chance to soften its rougher edges and revealing secondary and tertiary complexities. I can see this improving over the next 5 years and may eventually garner a higher score. Rack it. (598 views)
 Tasted by jbhancock on 12/3/2009: This is kinda like chewing on some dirty, chewy leather. I don't know, but I'm just not into it. (2984 views)
 Tasted by snowstrm on 11/1/2009 & rated 87 points: A brown, rusty red edge with an overall hazy appearance. A fairly big and concentrated alcoholic nose w/spice, oak, and dark cherry. Tannins and cherry on the front of the mouth, then quickly fading away to nothing; very lean and thin. Fruit became a little more prominent with time in the glass and wine improved with food, but this wine is definitely past its prime. (3058 views)
 Tasted by bwillia on 5/19/2009 & rated 94 points: Big fruity nose with Cassis and just a hint of mint and green pepper. Purple at the core with very slight bricking at the edges. Cedar and dark fruit on the palate with some unresolved tannins. This is still quite young and should continue to evolve for several more years. Very nice. (3282 views)
 Tasted by davidandrose on 9/23/2006 & rated 91 points: Not decanted, pop-and-pour, then consumed over 3 hours. Very slight bricking, floral nose with cherry, with faint cherry still dominating the well-integrated fruit and leather flavors. Very enjoyable. Still has a few years of life remaining. (3664 views)
 Tasted by davidandrose on 11/25/2005 & rated 91 points: Opened - not decanted - and consumed over 4 hours. Nice coloring, no bricking, a little green apple and lavendar on the nose. Still slightly tannic, some fading cherry fruit and licorice. Nice even finish, if rather thin, lasting 20+ seconds. Pleasant and still capable of lasting 3+ years, but again, unlikely to improve.

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.
