“Big and bold, this red shows plum, licorice, tar and coffee flavors. Austere but harmonious, in a savory style, with muscular tannins giving this formidable structure. Rather tough, but shows impressive concentration. Best from 2018 through 2030.”

“Loveblock is the label of Erica and Kim Crawford, former owners of one of New Zealand's most famous labels. Their latest Sauvignon Blanc from organically grown fruit displays subtlety and complexity. The nose is a soft synthesis of peach, cantaloupe, lemon-lime, watermelon rind and warm stone minerality, while the palate is all about texture. It's tight, structured and chalky, with prickly acidity and a long citrus and mineral finish. Drink now with an array of seafood and cold salad dishes.”

"..... A Platinum Award Winner ....."

“Value wine in the Cabernet Sauvignon category is easier to come by than you might think -- a key is to look for very recent vintages in the under $15 category. Like this wine, they are built for early enjoyment, where fresh fruit and spice rule the day. Blackberry, and spice aromas and flavors unfold quickly and finish cleanly in this easy to find bottling. Go get some!

A Platinum Award Winner at the 2018 Monterey International Wine Competition.

"A lush, mouthwatering red blend .....
Primal Roots combines three of California's most versatile and distinctive grapes; Merlot, Syrah and Zinfandel for a wine that delivers the best of all three. Oak aging adds to the nuance and complexity while the softness, richness and ripe fruit of 49% Merlot marries with the bold texture and earthiness of 42% Syrah and the zesty berry and spice of 9% Zinfandel for a mouthful of wine that's both tasty and satisfying."

"..... big, bold, and spicy ....."
"This is not the elegant, delicate sipping wine that you’d find at your grandma’s bridge club. To the contrary, Sledgehammer Zinfandel is big, bold, and spicy.

It pairs well with grilled meat and loud music."

Victor Doyle, General Manager, Pop's Wines & Spirits, May 2018

",,,,, This is phenomenal over-achiever ....."
“I don’t make a practice of asking questions in print that I can’t answer, but: Why can’t more California wineries make wines at this superb quality level and sell them for less than $25 or $30? This is phenomenal over-achiever that is attractively aromatic and generously flavored, with a finish enlivened by an edge of citrus acidity.”
