Cheers to California. Most of our top wines came from this historically great wine country. The upside surprise was the increase in excellence from Paso Robles which rang up four winners. The rest of the 10 also came from the west coast of the U.S. with three from Napa Valley and one each from Sonoma, Walla Walla, Washington, and Escondido.

Last month, I shared with viewers the superiority of San Marzano tomatoes, especially in Italian cooking. I was hoping that there would have been a higher number of tomatoes that were ripe at the time of writing this week’s column. The warm late May/early June temperatures were a shot of lightning. However, the onset of June gloom over the past two weeks has slowed the growing and ripening process.

Mild muzz, good sauce to cheese ratio, and a doughy crust that compliments the other flavors. Not too greasy or floppy. Pretty good.
