Thank you so much for the detailed review, @wineryreflections! We are so proud of our Cabernet Sauvignon - it's one of our favorites! What's yours .............
Reposted from @wineryreflections - Crushed red raspberry, roasted tobacco, ripe blueberry. Fresh currant, eucalyptus leaf, juicy mulberry. Soft vanilla and clove, crumbled violet and potpourri. Charmingly crunchy and alive, dripping barely-ripe berry fruit and red licorice above subtle floral notes and mellow pyrazines. Lean and fruit-driven yet pinned back with a nice undercurrent of earth resembling dried clay loam, broken twigs, and sweat. Medium plus in body, showcasing mild understated tannin and a pleasant jolt of acidity. Well balanced, tastefully restrained, and solidly complex. This 2016 Lodi Cabernet Sauvignon by Thomas Allen Vineyards & Winery is a deliciously drinkable and wonderfully affordable California red.
Located in Northern California between Sacramento and Stockton, the wine region of Lodi has emerged in recent years as a terrific source for quality wine without correspondingly high prices. This region has a long history of wine production and was officially granted AVA status in 1986, which led to a surge of vineyard plantings in the 1990's. This bottling, crafted by Thomas Allen Vineyards & Winery using Cabernet Sauvignon sourced completely from Lodi, is a great example of why wines from this region have grown in popularity across the USA. This stuff is fruity and friendly, exhibiting proper typicity with energetic and agreeable structure. While not the most complex or extracted example of Cab Sauv this does a great job of delivering a clean, unmanipulated, and quality drinking experience. This is exactly the style of authentic and affordable wine we'd love to see a lot more of.
Have you tried wine from Lodi

If you’ve experienced the embarrassment of getting home from dinner and realizing your teeth are stained blood-red from those two glasses of Merlot, you’re not alone! Wine Nots were created to be compact, convenient, and discreet to whiten teeth and freshen breath! Don't get caught with red wine mouth #linkinbio
the dust and dirt,
from the valley floor
to the rugged hills,
the rebel roams.
Den kannst du machen. .
Ogni colore un sentore. È Matematico. Ottenuto da uve Merlot e Aglianico, affina in Barrique Francesi per circa sei mesi. Nel calice troviamo un vino superbo e di grandissimo livello qualitativo, generoso, che ci accoglie nei suoi vasti profumi. #merlot #italianwine #redwine #winestagram #winelover
Gratamente sorprendido con los caldos argentinos, cultura vitivinicola y experiencias innovadoras en la elaboración de vinos mono y multivarietales.
Terrenos, vides y guardas cuidadas bien seleccionadas.
Después el maridaje adecuado para buscar el extasis.
Jsme vděčni za dokonalý soulad chilských přírodních podmínek, který dává vzniknout vínu, jež se skrývá v láhvích Tarapacá. Proto jsme vytvořili Tarapacá Natura Plus, cuveé odrůd Cabernet Franc, Shiraz a Merlot, které chrání matku zemi. Koupí láhve přispějete do fondu studia životního prostředí.
#bucolic One of the best things about wine is that it tends to grow in pretty awesome places: rolling green hills, steep valleys, sunny slopes with picturesque houses.. like for example Gorizia/Goriška Brda, the tiny region on Italian/Slovenian border pictured here. While offering breathtaking views, these spots of rare beauty also remind us of how deeply humanity depends on the nature - and how intensely we shape it. And how natural winemakers, thanks to their respectful, sustainable vision and holistic approach, are doing a great job in showing everybody that wine can be great without using tons of synthetic sprays or turning vineyards into monocultural deserts devoid of life. So if you were looking for a reason to toast to today’s Earth Day, here it is: to natural winemakers and their noble quest for natural balance and biodiversity, live long and prosper! (We choose to drink @paraschoswines and hope you join us: their new release has just reached New York, as has one of the Paraschos brothers, and it’s pretty stunning. So should you wish to discuss the natural beauties of San Floriano over a glass of their unsulfured precise indigenous Ribolla Gialla or textured Ponka white cuvee, come say hi to @lamiconyc tonight where Jannis Paraschos is holding a BTG takeover (probably not drumming tonight, though, sprry). Or tomorrow to our Portfolio Tasting (trade-only), Wednesday to @discoverywinesny , Thursday to @haveandmeyer , Friday to @wildairnyc .. see you round!
