Where It's From

Region / California

View more wines from California

When it comes to US wine production, California is King. California wines account for almost 90% of all wines produced in the United States each year, and is home to the most celebrated vineyards and producers in the country. California is probably best known for its world-famous Cabernets and Chardonnays, many of which hail from its two most-acclaimed AVAs, Napa Valley and Sonoma County. Other prominent grapes used in California wines include Merlot, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, and Zinfandel (which California made popular).

Country / United States

View more wines from United States

The United States now ranks fourth in the world in wine production behind, France, Italy, and Spain. While about 90% of that wine is produced in California, other states like Oregon, New York, and Washington are establishing themselves as prime spots for wine production, as well. Just about any variety of wine can be found in production somewhere in the United States.

Slightly odd, Merlot-like notes of tomato join black cherries, cassis and cedar on the nose of the 2020 Cabernet Sauvignon (the wine does contain 7% Merlot and 2% Cabernet Franc). It’s medium to full-bodied, with a generally ripe, silky feel until the finish, where a touch of rusticity adds a tough edge. (Joe Czerwinski)

Deep ruby-purple, the 2020 Cabernet Sauvignon has pretty tones of green bell pepper, dried herbs, thyme, lavender and cedar over a core of red and black currant. The full-bodied palate is ultra juicy and packed with alluringly herbal fruit, and it boasts integrated oak, a soft, approachable frame and a long, perfumed finish. (Erin Brooks)

There’s a steely edge to the pear, apple and crisp pineapple aromas on the nose of this bottling. The palate sizzles with acidity and offers a touch of grip, with key lime pie flavors most prevalent. (Matt Kettmann)
SP8989 pts. - Wine Spectator - Mar 31, 2023
Offers juicy peach, apricot and pineapple flavors that are pure and appealing on a succulent frame, with a hint of honeysuckle lingering on the finish. Drink now. 192,500 cases made. (MaryAnn Worobiec)

Vibrant and succulent, with apricot, citrus and melon notes that mingle effortlessly with salted toffee and spices, showing plenty of verve on the finish. Drink now. 123,000 cases made. (MaryAnn Worobiec)
WE8989 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 12/1/2022
Likably tart aromas of lime pith and grapefruit peel are warmed by almond and lifted by spearmint on the nose of this bottling. The palate is rounded in expression, with baked melon, lemon and hazelnut flavors finishing on a flinty note. (Matt Kettmann)
