Don't listen to the WA folks, they're always after the same style of wine - underripe and acidic (fresh in their words) showing sense of place...give me a break...this wine is structured and shows oak seasoning as it should for a full bodied ripe wine. Critics hate ripe wines with oak because they say they are not a reflection of place - which actually means that they're not traditionally made. If you're not bound by the mentality of the wine snobs, you will most definitely enjoy this wine. Feel free to give me a thumbs down WA Wolfpack.
