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

  • Michael-David Vineyards Incognito 2005

    Snoothrank:

    This Rhône-style blend is bravely composed of 9 different varietals including: Mourvedre, Syrah, Petite Sirah, Cinsault, Carignane, Tannat, Malbec, Cabernet Franc, and Grenache. The outcome is successfully, by design, an enigmatic Rhône Valley tribute including, literally, every typical Rhône varietal. Surprisingly, I found characteristics and... Read More

  • Peltier Station Viognier 2006

    Snoothrank:

    This ia not a wine. It is some kind of liquid flower. Most Viognier has that floral nose but taste like some strange Chardonnay. Not this. It tastes like drinking orchids. I'm not a white wine drinker but this is one of my favorites. It has so much WOW factor that you white wine drinkers may have to take some time to appreciate it. (Sorry for be... Read More

    This is big and bold and smacks you right in the face. I love this style of wine and that is why I bought a case. This compliments pasta w/ red sauce and BBQ well. Read More

  • Cosentino Winery Zinfandel California Cigarzin 2006

    Snoothrank:

    My first exposure to Cigarzin was just recently. A group of my co-workers got together and had a variety of pizzas plus some Indian food to eat. One of the guys brought a bottle of the 2005 Cigarzin. Even though our food pairing was a bit of a hodge-podge, the wine was great. I can't wait to try it again with a meal that will do it justice.

  • Stanza Petite Sirah Lodi 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Not what I was expecting in a petite sirah but a good solid value wine nonetheless. Frankly tastes more like a merlot, very smooth, subtle fruit, mellow wine. Read More

  • Oak Ridge Winery Zinfandel California Gnarled Vine 2005

    Snoothrank:

    Good $30 Zinfandel - not crazy about their other wines but this, they got it right - sweet but just the right amount - lots of berries with a great nose - this was the last of 4 Oak Ridge wines we tried and was suprised - pleasantly - the others were ordinary - this was a step above - $30 a bit much, $15-20 is more like it but a good wine none t...
