95-97Robert M. Parker Jr.

...classic aromas of creme de cassis, blackberries, and flowers, full-bodied opulence, and a flamboyant, exotic personality with stunning concentration as well as balance.

93Wine Spectator

Firm, rich and layered, with spicy dried berry, mineral, anise and sage flavors that are full bodied and stylish, firming up on the finish, and ending with a subtle spicy edge.

92-95Stephen Tanzer

Utterly primary aromas of black fruits and spices. Superripe and sweet but youthfully clenched, with the very dense black raspberry and blackberry flavors showing a more chocolatey quality... The powerful finish features big tannins...


United States, California, Napa Valley

Napa Valley AVA is the most famous winemaking region in the United States and one of the most prestigious in the world. With nearly 43,000 acres of vineyards and more than 300 wineries, it is the heart of fine wine production in the United States. Winemaking started in Napa in 1838 when George C. Yount planted grapes and began producing wine commercially. Other winemaking pioneers followed in the late 19th century, including the founders of Charles Krug, Schramsberg, Inglenook and Beaulieu Vineyards. An infestation of phylloxera, an insect that attacks vine roots, and the onset of Prohibition nearly wiped out the nascent Napa wine industry in the early 20th century. But by the late 1950s and early 1960s Robert Mondavi and other visionaries were producing quality wines easily distinguishable from the mass-produced jug wines made in California’s Central Valley. Napa Valley’s AVA was established in 1983, and today there are 16 sub-appellations within the Napa Valley AVA. Many grapes grow well in Napa’s Mediterranean climate, but the region is best known for Cabernet Sauvignon. Chardonnay is also very successfully cultivated, and about 30% of the AVA’s acreage is planted to white grapes, with the majority of those grapes being Chardonnay,


Red Wine, Syrah (Shiraz)

This grape is grown in milder climates and produces a medium-to full-bodied wine. It is also known as Shiraz, but should not be confused with Petit Sirah, which was developed by crossing Syrah with Peloursin.
