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

  • The Pier Zinfandel 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Was expecting more fruit forward response from this zin. Instead, there was something that was off...maybe too tanic/acidic or too much oak. Whatever it was, it made the wine seem fake. Getting past that, there was a blend of red and black fruits. Read More

  • Michael-David Vineyards Syrah 6th Sense 2011

    Snoothrank:

    My wife and I had the 2011 vintage of this wine with some spicy BBQ pork last night and it was fantastic! It was a bit terse before we decanted it but it opened up nicely afterwards. Read More

  • Jacqueline Bahue Cabernet Franc Lodi 2012

    Snoothrank:

    A Naked Wines selection - Light, Fruit and Youth with some complexity, but overall, still a bit too young, but would like to try this a year or too down the road. Read More

  • St. Amant Zinfandel Marian's Vineyard 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Very attractive black plum color. Something of a sweet (caramelly) nose. Fairly jammy on the palate. Lots of blackberry/blueberry/cherry flavors make it, at least, seem sweet. Any tannins that are here, seem to be invisible. It's not hard to drink, but I could use more acid backbone. US$26,99 at Total Wine. Read More

  • Jc Van Staden Malbec Lodi 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Another Naked Wines offering. Have not tried a California Malbec and perhaps this one is not the one to begin with. Would have loved to have tried it with the Broquel Malbec I last had as a comparison. The JC struck me as watered down, with a thinnish red/claret somewhat transparent color as opposed to the squid ink purple opacity of the Argenti... Read More

  • Gnarled Vine Chardonnay 2011

    Interesting, floral chard from Lodi. Medium body, well balanced acidity. A departure from the everyday California chardonnay. Read More
