Third Quarter 2017 Wine Club Recommendations
This quarter we are recommending two very popular wines from our tasting room line up. Please remember that you are not locked in to these choices. If you wish to try something else, you are more than welcome to.

Again, many thanks to our dedicated Recommendation Selection Committee for coming up with such great wines to recommend. 

We brought this vintage of ZINHEAD out just a few weeks ago and it has become one of our most popular wines. The Zinfandel fruit for this wine comes from our own Block 14 vineyard, picked late in the season for fully ripe flavors, then blended with a small portion of Petite Sirah for additional intensity and structure. This is one of the wines I make that only goes into new American oak barrels, where it sits for two years before bottling.

2014 ZINHEAD and MalbecThis 2014 ZINHEAD has great aromatics that reminds me of ripe blackberries. On the palette it has a smooth, silky texture, full body with well integrated oak. If you have enjoyed any of my other Zins, and you haven’t had this one, you’ll find ZINHEAD to be right in line with the others.

If you are all interested in reading the back labels of wine bottles, the story on this one is true. At least mostly. John Henry Snyder really did come in and tell me he was a zinhead. I asked him if I could use that name and he said sure. The next time I saw him, I showed him the label. I’ll never forget his smile. He’s been a great supporter ever since.

You will find ZINHEAD to be a great quaffer, ready to be enjoyed right now with a meal or on its own. We sell it for $25 in the tasting room. Your price is $20, and re-orders before October 1 are just $17.50 a bottle.

2014 Semas Vineyard Malbec
Malbec is a new variety for me. I’ve been growing it for five years now, but this first harvest comes from the vineyard of John and Judy Semas, located near Galt California.

Mabec is a great fit for growers here in Lodi, where we have a long growing season with hot summer days and cool summer nights. This combination brings the fruit to full maturity, giving us the great color, structure and tannins that come from the skins. At the same time, with full ripeness, we avoid the green vegetal, bell pepper-like characters that this variety can sometimes express.

You will find our 2014 Semas Vineyard Malbec to have that classic big mid-palette plummy fruit that this variety has become know for. It’s a great wine to enjoy it as a sipper before sitting down at the dinner table or to accompany a meal. The great thing about this wine is that it goes well with just about anything you pair it with, from chicken, turkey, steak, all the way to the bigger flavored meats like lamb or game.

We are selling this wine for $28 per bottle, with your price being $22.40 and additional orders before the beginning of October only $19.60.

Other Recommendations

For those interested in something else or simply more, I have two bonus recommendations for you. One is our 2012 French Blend. Is a blend of mostly Cabernet Sauvignon, with lesser amounts of Petit Verdot and Syrah. Big fruit, nice structure and a long velvety finish. This wine was aged for three years in French oak, and is really in its prime right now.

The other bonus recommendation is our 2014 Barbera, which we released a few months ago. It has wonderful fruit up front balanced with good acidity. This is a great food wine, going well with just about anything, but particularly if you are doing Italian. This wine is very approachable right now, but will lay down nicely for several years if you are inclined to do so.

Both these are $22.40 for club members and are definitely worth taking a look at.
