Lodi Barbera 2017

This is a nice and easy drinking Barbara from Lodi.

Showing red and black fruits with chocolate notes, tobacco, coffee, spices and peppercorn.

Nice nose with wild flowers.

Fruit forward and rich, with medium acidity and long legs.

Medium plus in body with a nice mouthfeel.

A good food wine with a tangy finish and soft tannins.

Good right out of the bottle and good by itself, too. Drink now.

I gave it a light chill and had it with cheeses and crackers.

15% alcohol by volume.

89 points.

Turley

Bechtoldt Vineyard Cinsault

Lighter almost cru Beaujolais style, low abv and food friendly. Outside of the food friendly very different than most Turley wines in a good way. Great value drink young. — 25 days ago

The Dark Lodi Red Blend 2017

Yeah, buddy! Legs and color are amazing; full, opaque and very dark. Black currant and cherry and chocolate on the nose, with just a hint-o-spice. Taste is smooth and jammy, and it rounds out with a choclatey prune-like finish that I'm sort of into! It's a yes. — 7 days ago

Petite Petit Lodi Petite Sirah Petit Verdot 2016

85% #PetiteSirah and 15% #PetitVerdot
Deep, inky purple in the glass. Brilliant nose of black cherries, blackberries, and vanilla. This wine is huge. It is silky and big-bodied with notes of black fruit. The finish is long and beautiful. Great with roast beast 🤣

Freakshow Lodi Red Blend 2017

Slightly dry, but not like you're licking the barrel, and oh, the layers of taste..... Pepper and rich fruit... I'll definitely be buying more. Great with enchiladas and on its own. — 6 days ago

Sandlands

Kirschenmann Chenin Blanc 2015

Words fail.... medium clear gold with notes of lanolin, flowers, and waxy wool. The wine is clean, crisp, etherial at 12 ABV. Beautiful balance... nice stony acidity and plenty of white fruit... peach, pear, apple. No noticeable oak...long soothing finish. This wine ALWAYS overdelivers. I declare this wines best bargain. Thank you Tegan for your excellance and your commitment to “rational” pricing. — 10 days ago

Rapture Cabernet Sauvignon Petite Sirah 2012

Small production with a little Petite Sirah added and aged 17 months in French oak. Dark Ruby with aromas of sweet berry fruits and floral notes. On the palate big flavors of blackberry and cherry, almost jammy with vanilla oak, fine smooth tannins well balanced with sweet notes on the long finish. — 13 days ago
