Yolo County is an emerging wine region within the Central Valley district of California. The Sacramento River Delta provides a channel for cooling winds, making it the coolest region in Central Valley. It’s further divided into subregions, and the majority of the vineyards are located in the ones closest to the delta to the east, within the Clarksburg and Merritt Island AVA’s. But pioneering winemakers, such as John and Lane Giguiere, who founded R.H. Phillips winery, promote the warm weather conditions in the Dunnigan Hills and Capay Valley.
 
The warm weather climate is most conducive to varietals such as Syrah, Merlot, Zinfandel, Petite Syrah, Tempranillo. White grapes grown are Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Chenin Blanc. ~Amanda Schuster

  • Pinot Grigio Grazia 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Mineral and a bit nutty on the nose with fresh notes of pear fruit. Opening very clear and fresh on the palate with a little sage herb and mineral oil notes this is very light, broad and a little soft on the palate, fairly fruit driven with lots of pear, soft peach on the finish. Easy to drink. 84pts Read More

  • Dancing Coyote Gruner Veltliner 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Peppery and a little green on the nose though there is a little over-ripeness here with honied and cooked fruit aromas of peach and white cherry thats a bit waxy. This enters the mouth with a nice level of richness and good, firm acids. There's plenty of fruit here but it's much fresher than the nose would indicate. There's a light grassy note h... Read More

  • Bogle Vineyards Merlot California 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Totally delicious! Complex and concentrated; aromas and flavors of dark cherries and berries are complimented by notes of herbs, spices and cola. Easy drinking tannins on the finish.92pts. Read More

  • Bogle Vineyards Merlot California 2010

    Snoothrank:

    I honestly remember this tasting significantly better... I guess that says most of it. The nose is spectacular, if only you didn't have to drink it. The taste is overpowering and the tannins are right there with it. This is not a repeat wine for me. Read More
