Wine Critic Reviews:

...Super-saturated ruby/purple to the rim, a killer nose of blackberry, forest floor, spring flowers and cassis, the wine is full-bodied, shows licorice as well. It is intense, layered and multi-dimensional. This is a stunner and a great, great achievement, even in this fabulous vintage...this is a 30-year wine.

Country US: As one of the most prolific and innovative wine regions in the world, America is a joy to explore. Most wine connoisseurs will agree that the nation's finest and most compelling wines are being produced today, which means that we have front-row seats to one of the most inspirational stories in wine history. While other regions tend to focus on specific wine styles and have somewhat strict rules as to which varietals you could grow, areas like California have few such restrictions in place. As a result, creative visionaries behind America's most reputable estates have been able to develop compelling, unique, and innovative styles, with a level of terroir expression that rivals even France's largest giants.
Producer Cliff Lede: If you're looking for a wine that will set your soul ablaze, Cliff Lede Vineyards are on the job, quite literally with how one of their wines is called. Cliff Lede is a known Bordeaux connoisseur, and his efforts to surpass the legends have resulted in compelling and breathtaking New World wines. There's something spiritual about great wine, and Cliff Lede Vineyards can turn a person religious with how good theirs is. Reds and whites are both present, so there's something here for everyone. The flavors are rich, intense, with breathtaking depth and a unique purity that not even angels could create. The reds offer a careful attack, with balanced yet powerful notes of cassis, crushed blackberry, and spring violets. The whites approach you with zesty lemon, opulent tangerine marmalade, and delicate ginger.

Region California: With a history of wine production that dates back to the 18th century, California currently sits as one of the world's most prolific and reputable wine regions. With an area as vast as California, you can expect a colorful collage of terroir profiles, a series of microclimates, and micro-environments that give the wine a unique, memorable appeal. The region's produce is far from homogenized in that sense, and it would take you countless hours to sample all of it. While the region boasts scars from the Prohibition era, it went through what can only be described as a viticultural Renaissance sometime after the 1960s. At that point, California went from a port-style, sweet wine region to a versatile and compelling competitor on the world market. Today, no matter which way your taste in wine leans, you can find a new favorite producer among California's most talented. Notable sub-regions include legendary names like Napa Valley and Sonoma County, places that any wine lover would die to visit. California's quintessential warm climate allows for incredibly ripe fruit expressions, a style that provides a stark contrast to Old World-inspired, earthy classics. Even where inspiration was clearly taken from staple French appellations, Californian winemakers put their own unique spin on the wine.
Type of Wine California Red: Whether it's Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah or Zinfandel, Californian red wine producers have a lovely habit of taking a varietal and expressing its essence in a unique, never before seen way. From Napa Valley to the regions south of Los Angeles, there's a red for everyone - and it's never too late to start exploring.
