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

  • Fields Family Wines Syrah 2012

    Snoothrank:

    The wine is a lovely bright ruby color in the glass with nice clarity. The nose is classic Syrah, with a good bit of pepper, violet and that classic twang of tart cherry and fresh herbs. The taste is really quite nice, with a blast of tart cherry up front that quickly subsides to some rich, jammy flavors of blackberry and plum midpalate that j... Read More

  • Mccay Cellars Viognier 2014

    Snoothrank:

    The wine is a pale amber in the glass while the nose is a rather subdued combination of pear and violets. The taste is quite well developed, with lovely flavors of pear, violet and a good bit of minerality. It's not as crisp and shocking to the palate like some white wines can be, but rather has more subdued acidity and a full mouthfeel that m... Read More

  • Uvaggio Rosato 2014

    Snoothrank:

    The wine is a lovely vivid pink color in the glass. The nose expresses lovely notes of cherry, plum and rose petals. The taste is quite unexpected, with some bright berry notes up front that yield to tart cherry and some mineral notes of iron midpalate. The finish is quite nice but not particularly long, but quite dry. I'll admit that based ... Read More

  • Harney Lane Zinfandel Lodi Old Vine Lizzy James Vineyard 2012

    Snoothrank:

    The wine is a lovely deep garnet color in the glass. The nose is just fantastic, with jammy fruit, blackberry, plum and some earthy notes of leather and toasted oak. The taste is surprisingly crisp despite the jammy fruit on the nose, with some notes of tart cherry, blackberry and plum and a hint of rosemary and vanilla. Really nice complexit... Read More

  • Gnarly Head Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

    Snoothrank:

    I must say, this was recommended by a friend. $9.95 and the taste was a hit at a cookout! Very smooth, deep purple color. Very pleased. Flavorful, not to dry like some cabs. Very smooth! I've found a budget priced cab!!!! Read More

  • Klinker Brick Syrah Farrah 2012

    Snoothrank:

    New world styled Syrah that is nicely fruity without being jammy. It has enough acid to give some balance and finishes with some hefty tannins. This is a big wine that gives big satisfaction. Read More
