It's been a couple of years since I last tasted this wine and it has settled into its adolescence nicely. The forward red fruit has become abit more restrained and the oak is not as overpowering as it was in its youth. There's still reasonable depth for a wine at this price point with baking spice and cola notes throughout. If you like Cali PN, this is a good example with a very good qpr.
No doubt that this is from California. Bright, round and rich with a lucious mouthfeel. Nose show some earth, wood and herbal qualities I quite like. Taste is juicy fruit (raspberry, blueberry, pommegrate) with a little cola bringing up the rear. Right time and place, this delivers.
