Salmon Creek Cellars
Salmon Creek is a brand owned by Bronco Wine Company in California. It is operated by the Franzia family, relatives of Ernest Gallo, who are known for owning several inexpensive brands including Charles Shaw (Two-Buck Chuck) and Franzia box wines. Salmon Creek is one of their more “premium” brands, offered at many restaurants and retail establishments. The wines are available in single varietal whites, reds, rosés, sparkling wines and blends.– Description from Amanda Schuster
This really does smell pretty, with piercing lime notes, coconut cream and wood spice, and vanilla all coming together. Fairly light bodied when one considers what the nose sets you up for. There’s some obvious oak here and the wine has some soft edges...

where to purchase Salmon creek Cabernet Sauvingnon 2010 07666

I was wondering what sort of new topic I could start that would pair nicely with my previous posting 'Weekday Wines'; well here it is - Weekend Wines. Sometimes I just have to stop and take a minute to pat myself on the back for my quick wit but alas, this isn't one of those times. Anyway, why not talk about wines we enjoy on weekends? These ...

Unfortunately for me, I can't purchase this wine at a local store, only through specialty shops which charge a premium price. If you can buy it DO! It's a fantastic wine for the price. In a blind taste test against other more expensive Cabs - it came out the winner. Read More

We're heading back to (my favorite wine region) Russian River the first weekend in October and are looking for advice on what to do and what to expect. We've been to RRV several times but only during the off season. Is there anything special we should do at this time of year, and conversely, is there anything we should avoid? Read More

I'll give you the quick recap here and then provide links to my blog with more details. I arrived late night on Wednesday the 26th, and then started tasting wine on the 26th. My first stop on the tour was the Seven H... Read More
Like Zinfandel, Petite Sirah is primarily a California wine: the Golden State’s long, sunny growing seasons are necessary to ripen Petite Sirah’s substantial tannins and reveal its rich blackberry flavors. The wine’s structure, fruit and inky color make it an excellent blending partner for Zinfandel, red Rhône varieties and even Cabernet Sauvign... Read More

Have noticed the Salmon Creek 2009 Chardonnay is lacking any oak character. Have they changed this wine, or did we get a bad batch?
It was a wonderful table wine. I found it comparable to J Lohr in finish and quality. I need to get more of this! Read More

I love this Chardonnay, but I can only get it at restaurants or on-line. Why can't I buy it at any stores, like Trader Joe's or Bev-Mo or any retail store?
