2020 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition Results
Another stong showing from St. Amant wines at the 20th annual San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition, and in particular those from the highly-regarded Mohr-Fry Ranches. The 2020 awards are highlighted by the 2018 Alicante Bouschet, a relative newcomer to the St. Amant tasting lineup, winning Best of Class in only its second vintage with the winery. A tasting room mainstay, the 2018 Mohr-Fry Old Vine Zinfandel captured a Gold medal. The up-and-coming 2017 Mohr-Fry Ranch Petite Sirah rounded out the awards with a Gold medal as well, continuing its hot streak in competitions.
Check out this snippet from Mike Dunne's tasting notes on all Best of Class winners:
St. Amant Winery 2018 Lodi Mohr-Fry Ranch Alicante Bouschet: By the richness of its dark fruit, astonishing complexity, well-integrated oak and rejuvenating acidity the St. Amant elevates the historic workhorse Alicante Bouschet to a new level of respect, even nobility. -Mike Dunne
