...reveals intriguing notes of blueberries, black currants, licorice and forest floor. Rich and full-bodied with good balance, purity and overall texture, this silky-textured, fleshy 2007.

92Vinous / IWC

Complex nose offers redcurrant, smoked meat and licorice, accented by pepper and tobacco notes. Then sweet, lush and fat with fruit. A very ripe style, but the wine's spicy component and smoky minerality provide lift to the middle palate.

91Wine Spectator

Starts out firm and supple, weaving together a complex mix of cedar, currant, blackberry, spice and tobacco. Full-bodied and structured, firming nicely on the finish.


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.

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,
