As Layne Montgomery says - 'This is my Monster Red Blend. It’s Syrah, Carignane, Tempranillo, a bit of Zin and Petite.' This is a beautifully crafted brute from California - just inland from Frisco Bay - a bold blend that has no hard edges but lots of rich, dark fruited impact and a swathe of dark chocolate and spice. One to pull the cork on when you fire up the grill! Summer fun in the garden. L&S (Aug 2018)

Layne Montgomery is a charming, colourful character and a very talented winemaker. Self-taught he started this fantastic project in 2004, creating dynamic, artisanal wines from distinctive vineyards on the West side of Lodi, California.

Some vines are now over 100 years old, which is remarkable for this oft forgotten part of the wine world. He eschews French oak for American oak. 'French oak is too delicate, he says. 'It's like putting lipstick on John Wayne'.

The wines have simply got better and better as Layne has honed his craft and he is now making stand out wines for the region. When we met him on a balmy August night amongst the vines of Lodi we were immediately enchanted by his stunning wines and amusing, outspoken character. These are wines with personality and a refined sense of place.
