Yolo County is a 1,024-square-foot region northwest of Sacramento. It has traditionally been an agricultural area and produces about 90% of all the canned and processed tomatoes consumed in the U.S. Today Yolo is also attracting wineries, and there are now several dozen making most of the major California varietals, from Chardonnay and Pinot Noir to Merlot and Zinfandel.
Think leather and cherries together for Tempranillo wines. This wine looks lighter than it is. It can be medium or full bodied, but its thin-skinned, big grapes, give it a more transparent appearance. It is grown in Spain, Portugal, the U.S. and Australia.
