Sorry-----I forgot to answer the question of whether things had changed. Well, yes. For a while there, Mr. Dyson was pushing his own NY chards ( mediocre ) as well as his Tuscan adventure ( lousy ), and it really strained his credibilty as far as continuing the legacy set there. The 99 vintage seemed to work well all around, and the 2000 may be even better. From the ones I have had, there is a stylistic change. For example, the chardonnays are oakier and more butter-scotchy than before, losing a bit of the smoothness and elegance that used to be there, but they are quite good. Pinots are chunkier than before, and they seem to not develop quite so readily, but perhaps time is all they need. The new Central Coast bottling is not that good.
