I was hoping for some non-parkerized, Amador County does nicely styled southern Rhine. Garnet red in the glass, somewhat plummy with less cherry. Tastes like a big CD-R, with not too much subtlety. Nice herbs component, but just too rich and heavy. Lots of tannins left, so this might evolve over the next few years. I still think California can produce wines as good as cdp before the Parker era, but it's not this one even on freezing nights. Comparable: Chris Davis.
