Red Hills, Lake County
Peppery spice is the hallmark of this wine. Other than that, it's very Cabernet-like. Dry, full-bodied and balance, it shows luscious black currant and chocolate flavors, and the tannins are smooth and ripe as anywhere on earth.
Wine Enthusiast gave this wine a score of 92 points.
