Made from a blend of grapes from several California counties, we did not find this wine as appealing as some of the other wines from this producer's portfolio. The nose had some attractive smoky/herbal components, but the flavor and finish struck us as a bit green, and more herb- than fruit-driven, though some smoky dark currant fruit was evident in the flavors. At this point the tannins in the finish are on the bitter rather than round side - WB Team 2002-11-13
