So I wanted to do a blog about some of the latest best value trends out there for California wine appreciators. There’s a lot of good options out there currently for both white and red wines. Some of them are really not from wineries you would spring forward to buy up a case but at the same time those are often the wineries that you get the wonderful suprises with great value. I would suggest checking out a few of these:
- 2009 Bogle Vineyards Petite Sirah ($11)
- Marietta Old Vine Red Lot #56 ($12)
- 2009 Colby Red ($13)
- 2010 The Pinot Project Pinot Noir ($14)
- 2009 Joel Gott Wines 815 Cabernet Sauvignon ($18)
I would be really interested in the 2010 pinot noir from the Pinot Project and also the Marietta Old Wine because they seem to have some distinct characters behind the wineries. The interesting thing to note about all of the wines is that the grapes that the wineries have used for these wines come from a range of sources all over the state of California and very different types of grape sources. It’s a wonderfully diverse range of selection and I think there is probably something for everyone in this list. Check them out and let me know if you have any preference for those on the list. Happy drinking.
