Tastes like carmenere. Tasty wine. Violets, blackberry pate de fruits, summer herbs. — 5 days ago

Popped and poured, consumed over three days and best on Day 2. No formal notes. This is the third vintage of Sandlands “Red Table Wine” from Lodi and it has become a “must cop” for me. Endowed with lovely fruit and zippy acid, it’s very versatile and a sublime pairing with a variety of meals. A combination of three varieties and three vineyards in three equal parts; Cinsault from the Bechthold (1886), Carignane from Spenker Ranch (1900) and Zinfandel from Kirschenmann (1915); 12 barrels and one 500L puncheon produced. — 15 days ago

Yumm, sophisticated Carmenere. Somewhere between a floral light merlot and a burgundy.

Popped and poured; no formal notes. This vineyard was planted in 1886. Bright cherry and bruised strawberry fruits with some orange curaçao, espresso a light kiss of spices. Overall, there’s an impression of freshness that’s super attractive. Forget what you think you know about Lodi; wines like this flip the script. A lovely accompaniment with burgers on a summer night. Only 5 barrels produced. — 9 days ago
A nice surprise Syrah wine my husband opened that we are trying for the first time. Wow the color is a deep inky purple. It’s color definitely matches it’s bold fruit blueberry aroma mixed with a sweet vanilla-chocolate wafers, florals followed by notes of earth and cedar. Taste — nicely layered and velvety with initial flavors of boysenberry and a hint of raspberry followed by secondary flavors of smoked meat, minerals ending with a jammy graphite licorice cocoa long dry finish. — 20 hours ago
