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

  • Ozv" Old Zin Vines Lodi Zin 2012

    Snoothrank:

    OZV, being one of the fastest (if not the fastest) growing Zins in America, is in my opinion the best value Zin on the market today. Dark, Chewy, ample oak, intense berries and Zin spice for $10-15! You really can't beat this wine for the money. Read More

  • Woodbridge Shiraz 2006

    Snoothrank:

    Just opened a bottle of Robert Mondavi Woodbrige Shiraz 2006. It was slightly chilled.A lovely wine-red colour. I could immediately taste the pleasant, uncomplicated berry flavourings, which lasted longer than I would have expected. I would gauge this a medium-bodied wine. An excellent quality every-day drinking wine, suitable with most foods, o... Read More

  • Mcmanis Family Vineyards Zinfandel 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Light powdered sugar aromas of cherry, violets and strawberry. Big bold and ripe flavors of cherry, cranberry and baking spices. Tart and fresh, this is a great sipper that is easy drinking and easy on the wallet. It has the bold acidity and flavor of a zinfandel without being overly powerful. Read More
