WE 90 CG 90 Pts - According to Connoisseurs Guide - "Generous and juicy, ripe cherry fruit sits comfortably at the heart fresh-as-can-be youngster and is enriched by a careful dollop of sweet oak in both scent and taste, if the wine is arguably still a bit gregarious and a little coarse at the edges, its basic balance and sense of depth are quite impressive at the price. Its fruity energy admittedly affords it plenty of appeal even now, but we have every confidence that a few years of smoothing will make a very good thing much better yet."
According to Wine Enthusiast - "Quite ripe raspberry juice, cola, roses and violet candy shows on the nose of this wine from the veteran producer along Highway 101 in southern San Luis Obispo County. The palate offers root beer, cola, cream soda, chocolate-covered cherries and cappuccino elements." 13.9% ABV.
