Young's is one of the first vineyards you come to after turning onto Shenandoah Road in Plymouth. Over the years we have become an essential stop for a growing group of enthusiastic fans of our celebrated Estate Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel, Syrah, Sangiovese and Barbera. Young’s also offers a superb Roussanne. “Young’s Barbera is best in class,” says Rocklin landscape designer Scott Jardine. “All their wines are top drawer – they rival anything out of the Napa Valley.” Scott and several of his friends have been making annual jaunts to Shenandoah Valley to buy their favorite Young’s wine by the case. When we purchased the Property in 1992, there was an operating winery producing 1,000 cases of wine with seven acres of grapes. Today, production has increased to 6,000 cases and the place has expanded to 30 acres, including 10 acres of lawns, gardens and picnic grounds surrounding a tranquil pond. In this year’s “Best of Summer” special section, the Sacramento Bee named Young’s the Read more »

  • 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 ...

  • It's really rustic. It's  actually a Grenache Gris from the same vineyard as the Idlewild that JD posted upthread. It's tightly wound and needs the air to come alive. Too young for the tannins to mellow with air.Now Mark, about the stain in your carpet...  I would never have white carpet personally. But of I did it would mock you! ;) Read More

  • The Veneto is home to some of the most profound red wines of italy. Of course we all know these wines, Amarone in particular but to a lesser extent Valpolicella and the very popular if less to my taste valpolicella Ripasso, but the veneto is also home to two fabulous indigenous white wines, as well as a slew of other wines that are easily crafte...

  • Maybe.The reason is that there's a heirarchy in Italy. Langhe is a DOC, or Denominazione di Origine Controllata. That means the grape varieties and winemaking are controlled.But Barolo and Barbaresco are DOCG, or Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita, which is the highest classification in Italy. It means that not only are things cont... Read More

  • Hey everyone, what are some of your favorite 'everyday' or M-F types of wines to accompany a regular dinner?  I personally have enjoyed the Montoya Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa, and I usually pick it up from Total Wines out here in Virginia.  This is one of those fruit-forward cabs that isn't too complex for me to appreciate, and it usually cost...

  • Finished a bottle of 2007 Ghost Block Cabernet Sauvignon Single Vineyard tonight with dinner. It's probably still a bit young yet - but very nice. Dense.I'm in the midst of building a wine-storage area and some nice Cab Sauv is a good incentive to continue expending all the time and money... Read More

  • Hi everyone.  My wife Sandra and I have been into wine for the past few years and that's led to a few trips to Napa Valley and related areas in 2012 and 2013.  We enjoy all wines but reds are our favorites.  We hosted our first wine tasting party last night and it was a fun event - sixteen wine lovers trying different wines in a blind tasting.  ...

I'm not seeing many available in the States quite yet, but was happy to find these locally. Read More

  • "OT - as far as the vines going deep and all that, I have to demur. That's what everyone says, but I have yet to see any science to it. Basically, after you have a plant that's three or four years old, the vast majority of the roots are in the top five or six feet of the soil. Take a look at trees that get blown over in the wind and see where th... Read More
