About This Wine:
Situated 100 miles directly east of the San Francisco Bay at the edge of the San Joaquin/Sacramento River Delta, cool “delta breezes” provide the region with a reliable, natural air conditioning throughout the growing season. This perfect climate allows Lodi winegrowers to consistently craft delicious, full-flavored wines that display a refreshing natural acidity.
That’s an apt description of the 2017 Cloudcrest Winery “Melange” Red Wine, which was crafted from Lodi-grown grapes. The region is home to all of California’s leading varieties, and has long been the leading producer and California’s best-kept secret for Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc and Zinfandel.
This Merlot-based blend is a medium-bodied wine that doubles as a delicious sipping wine and a versatile companion to food. It has a sweet, spicy and peppery finish that seems to beg for another sip.
