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

  • 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

  • Bay Bridge Cabernet Sauvignon

    Snoothrank:

    I know my cheap wines and this is a winner! Not like most of the snobs on here but can appreciate a good wine at beer bottom prices. Bay Bridge certainly beats two buck chuck in quality. Read More

  • David Akiyoshi Sauvignon Blanc Musque Clone Lodi 2014

    Snoothrank:

    A recent Naked Wines selection. Rarely drink Sauvignon Blanc, so have not developed much of a taste, but I found this one delightful. Opens with grapefruit and in the background, a hint of baker's yeast, then some kiwi and an interesting ripe strawberry scent or two, then green moss, intense kiwi, and sunshine grass. There is a great minerality ... Read More

  • Jacqueline Bahue Cabernet Franc Lodi 2013

    Snoothrank:

    A Naked Wines selection; Brown ruby color and translucent in the glass. Opens with cherry/strawberry/cranberry, then vanilla and plum, and then more toasty plum, and finally, a bit of allspice and other baking spices. Soft and well balanced tannins and acidity and nice full mouthfeel, with just a bite of youth. Medium long finish of cedar, vanil... Read More
