San Joaquin County Wine

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

  • Gen 5 Old Vine Zinfandel 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Deep ruby color; on site, you'd think it was aged. A unique, heavy wine that corrals purple fruits flavors from miles around -- plum, blueberries, blackberries. Ancient dirt on the tongue, this is an wise old wine. Superior value. Read More

  • Joel Gott Zinfandel California 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Light in color, spicy nose of cinnamon but lacks intensity on the pallet and fruit. Over priced. Not up to the caliber of his days at Montevina. My rating -- 83. Read More

  • Volar Lodi Zinfandel 2012

    Snoothrank:

    A Lot 18 Selection - interesting, these are the Tasting Notes:'...A bit lighter in color than you'd expect, this Zin surprises with a boom of raspberry, blackberry and blood orange aromas. The berry flavors, in particular, carry over to the palate, along with notes of ripe cherry and chocolate, all combining and leading to a long finish. There's... Read More

  • Bedrock Kirschenmann Vineyard 2012

    Snoothrank:

    My 2nd place wine and the groups 1st Theres some gentle cocoa and mocha on the nose but this is dominated by sweet raspberry and boysenberry fruit that is very fresh with lightly floral and smoky top notes. Medium light on the palate and with a touch of aggressive tannins early on the palate followed by pure, light and transparent red berry, ras... Read More
