for this region?

The Central Valley wine region of California is located east of the San Francisco Bay area, running south through the Sacramento and San Joaquin valleys to Bakersfield. It is within these valleys, and the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta where they meet in between, where viticulture takes place. 
 
The hot, dry conditions of the region are prone to high yields, which is how this region became the center of California’s bulk wine production. But within some of the Valley’s subregions, a growing number of high quality wines are also in production. 
 
Central Vallley is divided into the following subregions:
Diablo County
Fresno County
Lodi
Madera
River Junction
Tracy Hills
Yolo County

  • Gnarly Head Old Vine Lodi Zinfandel 2014

    Snoothrank:

    The Gnarly Head (Lodi, CA) Zinfandel is typical of its Central Valley provenance; there is a soft vanilla-cherry nose with a hint of evergreen (cedar or cypress), and entry is slightly sweetish with a ton of blueberry or bilberry on the palate, a short finish but decent balance with little heat (despite the 15% alcohol by volume.) and touch of c...

  • Zin-Phomaniac Zinfandel Lodi 2015

    Snoothrank:

    As has been stated by an editorial review, dusty black tea and raspberry aromas. I also picked up a sharp citrus scent which followed through, in taste, on the first glass but mellowed thereafter. Flavor wise, leans more towards blackberry, plum, and a hint of dark cherry with the black tea leaf flavor in the background. I like peppery wines and... Read More

  • Zin-Phomaniac Zinfandel Lodi 2015

    Snoothrank:

    Dusty black tea, raspberry and blueberry aromas. Chewy red fruit and baking spice flavors, tart and full of mixed berry with more of the dried black tea leaf flavor coming through with strawberry and cinnamon on the finish. Read More
