True to form, the valley floor wine from Aida vineyard is plump and bombastic. Parker raves, On the valley floor, with an almost Châteauneuf-du-Pape layer of small stones, is the Aida Estate, one of my favorite vineyards just north of St. Helena... there are 800 cases of this magnificent wine, with a somewhat Graves-like scorched-earth, charcoal, burning ember-scented nose, with notes of hot earth, blackberry and cassis fruit. Big, full-bodied, exuberant and rich, this thick, unctuously textured, purple wine should drink beautifully for 25-30 or more years." "
