"Hints of sage and thyme in the aromas give a nice savory sheen to this generous and fruity wine. It is medium to full bodied, very smooth in mouthfeel, well balanced and moderate in tannins." — Jim Gordon

"With its laser focus on black fruit flavors, this firmly structured wine has a distinct personality. Generous tannins and a good dose of fruit acidity provide plenty of grip on the palate. Each sip reveals more depth and layers, suggesting it's a good bottle to lay down for future consumption. Best after 2022." — Jim Gordon

"A wine for grown-ups, this is big but balanced and dry in style. It matches impressive layers of just-ripe blackberry and black-plum flavors with a sturdy structure of fine-grained tannins that clean the palate easily. It has considerable depth and focus, indicated by how the dark fruits seem to keep increasing in intensity even on the finish." — Jim Gordon

"Herbaceous aromas and bright citrus flavors give an almost-electric charge to this light-bodied, crisp and appetizing wine. Aromas of snap peas, parsley and fresh-cut grass lead to lemon and grapefruit flavors and a tingly mouthfeel. It's a perfect summer-to-fall drink." — Jim Gordon

Profile
Uvaggio Vermentino is unmistakably Californian. It’s as if the classic, light Italian Vermemtino’s flavor and aroma knobs were dialed as high as they could go..

Pairing
These vibrant wines often taste like passion fruit or citrus, sometimes accented with an herbaceous note. A fruity-zesty balance, a signature of Sauvignon Blanc, is what makes these wines delicious with goat cheese (a staple pairing of France’s Loire Valley). The wine makes the cheese taste creamier.

More About The Wine
East of San Francisco, Lodi is a warm, dry region that’s suitable to just about every grape variety, red or white. Winemaking immigrants from Europe figured this out around 1850. Italian settlers found especially strong success with their native varieties, among them Vermentino; the grape doesn’t require cool nights to retain its bright character.
