Gen5, Chardonnay, Lodi, California, 2014 - $12.99
A very friendly Chardonnay, with juicy tropical fruit flavors, a hint of creaminess, and a long, bright finish. Perfect for everyday drinking. Incredible value for a wine from certified green vineyards by Lodi Rules Sustainable Winegrowing! “Best Buy”, Wine Enthusiast
Dry Canyon Cellars, Pinot Noir, California, 2014 - $11.99
Steve Schafer, being in a family farm business, has grown over 12 varietals of wine grapes for over 40 years in Madera County. Steve, along with wife Cindy, founded San Joaquin Wine Company as the fulfillment of a personal passion and the family’s commitment to sustainable grape growing. Earthy, fruity nose with hints of fresh raspberry. Light-medium bodied, smooth tannins with lots of dark berries and plums, juicy but not quite jammy. Very versatile with foods or just outdoor sipping. Fantastic California Pinot value!
Gen5, Merlot, Lodi, California, 2015 - $12.99
Give Merlot some love! Blended with 13% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Petite Verdot to add body and spice. This bold Merlot will hold up to all your fall dishes. Easy drinking, with explosive ripe, red fruit flavors that are well-balanced, textured and juicy on the palate. “Best Buy”, Wine Enthusiast
Gen5, Ancestral Red, Lodi, 2015 - $12.99
This wine is a crowd-pleasing smash hit! Lush flavors of wild blackberry pie and blueberries with hints of mocha and baking spices. Comforting and inviting with its rich dark fruit flavors, creamy texture, and velvety finish. Blended from the grapes Lodi has become famous for; 65% Zinfandel, 21% Petite Sirah, 9% Cabernet Sauvignon, 1% Malbec, 1% Merlot, 3% other local varietals.
Gen5, Cabernet Sauvignon, Lodi, California, 2014 - $12.99
Exploding with juicy red and black fruit. Herb and candied plum aromas and flavors ride a rather light texture in this medium-bodied, fruity and slightly oaky wine. 8 months with French (80%) and American (20%) oak. This Cab is great on its own for fall sports watching, with any casual meal or dresses up for a nice weekend dinner.
