From old vines between Healdsburg and Geyserville in Sonoma. In keeping with a lot of other 96's, does not possess the generosity and warmth of some other years. Dark fruit flavors with an herbal (even slightly vegetal?) edge are present, but the overall impression is one-dimensional and a bit tough-textured. - WB Team 2000-07-21
