Like many wines from the Sierra Nevada foothills, very port-like in terms of its weight and sugar content -- but less pleasant and interesting in its flavor profile. Heavy, raisiny, plummy flavors, still some residual tannin to resolve. Not bad with cheese, but a bit clumsy to our taste. - HK 2002-02-15
