California Vintage 2019

2019 was, notwithstanding some terrible fires, a very good one.A long warm summer made up for wet weather in the spring and the growing season was long. Harvesting was carried out without the necessity to rush anything, and most fruit was safely gathered in when wildfires broke out late in October. Some wineries were devastated by the flames but most came away unscathed and with little smoke taint affecting the wines. White varieties show excellent potential, as does pinot noir, but most reds show very well in a very good vintage.

[This wine] hails from the Lodi region in the Central Valley of California east of San Francisco. Sweet spicy blueberry fruit on the nose with some confected, baked tones in there too. Across the tastebuds the sweet theme continues with an entry of a caramelised note to the juicy fruits, which is tempered by a little bitter balance from a hint of coffee grounds across the mid-palate and a touch of spice to those attractive purple fruits. I’m a big fan of Lodi petite sirah and it’s no surprise that this was awesome with a rich spicy chilli with tacos and all the bits.

This Californian red tastes of cherry and milk chocolate.

Blackberry and chocolate. One of my go-to warming wines.

Petite sirah is a grape, also known as durif, which is widely grown in California but rarely seen elsewhere. This has an unmistakeable nose of chocolate, black fruit and baked figs. The medium to full-bodied palate offers similar flavours with the addition of some liquorice, oak spices and some ripe tannins. This is definitely my wine of the week. It's very good value and would be great with a slow-cooked autumn casserole.

Wine of the Week ... bold, full-bodied yet very approachable and wonderfully balanced ...  An impressive bouquet with lots of brambly dark fruit flavours leads to an opulent palate where big cherry and blackberry flavours mingle with backnotes of dark chocolate and caramel before a lengthy finish with hints of oak and black pepper. This proved an ideal match to [a] delicious selection of French cheese and grapes ...

This red made by fifth generation family farmers in the middle of California’s Central Valley has a very loyal following among Wine Society members who enjoy its generous, rich and full-bodied charms.
