Hey folks, I’m getting some great feedback on the Contra Costa County wines story in today’s Food section, so thanks. Some of you have asked which one is my fave, or what I would recommend as a good example of the region’s capabilities. I think the best ones coming out of the area are reds, and here’s three that prove it:
My top CC wine that’s affordable, good for everyday drinking and smells faintly of roses is Hannah Nicole Vineyards Red Table Wine. It’s either $10 or $14 and you can find all their wines at the BevMo! in Walnut Creek.
I also love love love Cline’s Zinfandels, they’re peppery and smooth. All of them are worth trying. These are everywhere.
Ca’na, the label of Tamayo Family Vineyards, puts out some fabulously meaty syrahs. The 2002 is great at $20. You should be able to find Ca’na at BevMo!
