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
River Junction
Tracy Hills
Yolo County

  • Cline Lodi Zinfandel 2013


    More like a robust cab than a zin. Missing the zin sweetness. Well balanced. Would buy again but it was not on target with the varietal. Read More

  • Klinker Brick Zinfandel Old Vine 2012


    This Old Vine Zin is a deep garnet color and has a rich smoky, black cherry aromas with hints of dark chocolate and a distinct spike of cardamon spice. At the first sip you get a smooth, deep overripe cherry taste with a sweetness on the tip of your tongue, which teases the taste buds. After a while the sweetness settles down a little but the ...

  • Gnarly Head Old Vine Zinfandel Lodi 2013


    This is a fabulous very full-bodied rich red! The blackberry and cassis fruit tasting notes are succulent! We paired it with olives, sharp cheddar on multigrain bagette dipped in peppery/herbed olive oil with garlic stuffed olives. I think it would be excellent with any spicy cuisine, which makes the spicy backnote of this wine explode on your ... Read More

  • Noble Vines Cabernet Sauvignon 337 2013

  • Ghostrider Ungrafted Red Lodi 2014


    Dark and smoky aromas of rich red raspberry and chalky notes of red currant and spice. This is velvety in the mouth with loads of bright cherry flavor, fresh ripe raspberry and toasted vanilla cream. A fun and easy drinking red blend that feels elegant and soft in the mouth while not being afraid to dish out a bit of spice on the finish. Read More
