Hunter Hill Winery 2012 Hunter’s Blend, Lodi

Hunter Hill Winery 2012 Hunter's Blend, LodiStacey Vreeken recommended this wine made by former Navy Seal turned winemaker, Vann Slatter, writing in the Santa Cruz Sentinel.

She said: “A mélange of Merlot, Zinfandel and Barbera from Lodi, Hunter’s Blend, made by Hunter Hill Vineyard and Winery, stays true to these varietals that excel in the Lodi area. The fruit-forward blend is friendly and approachable, a good choice to bring to dinner parties.

She added: “This wine is like a farm road on a hot day, watch out for that truck coming fast on your tail. Medium-bodied, with flavors of blackberry and dark fruit, the well-blended wine comes on with strong tannins at the finish to linger.

“Pair it with pasta with red sauce, warm and rich, like this wine.”

Price: $20
