Wine should be fun. Yet, wine can still be a bit of an enigma for people: everyone loves it, but fully understanding tasting notes, varietal differences, pairings, and vintages, seems to require a college degree. Let’s face it, buying and enjoying wine can be intimidating.

Friends, do not fret! For Tank18 can be your sanctuary. We’ve scoured the wine country to find the best seasonal varietals and brought them to the city in our nifty metal tanks (ah-ha! That’s where our name comes from!). We strive to stay “local” when sourcing our juice, so Napa, Sonoma, Lodi, and Santa Cruz are natural targets, but you never know which region and grower will surprise us. That is part of the fun. And, since we aren’t reliant on sourcing our wine from a single plot of turf, we can competitively track quality wine without having to jack-up the prices. An ever-changing wine adventure made approachable and fun. Our friendly, personable, and ultra handsome staff is here to pour you a glass, ask how your day went, and explain the wine in a clear, frank manner.

2012 EL DORADO BARBERA

Cherry and vanilla flavors are immediately apparent, feeling soft and rich. Robust fruit with acidity and soft tannin make it a favorite.

Aromas of balsamic glazed figs, dried rose petals and a touch of green peppercorns. Smooth and rich on the palate with a persistent finish.

2012 el dorado zinfandel

Aromas of rose petals, orange blossom, cherry and cloves. Flavors that begin with cedar and tobacco finishing with minerality. 

2011 el dorado petite sirah

Fresh, bright cherry, followed by bramble berry and a touch of toasted oak to complete the aroma. This juicy grape flavor is wrapped in a very supple, fine chalk-like texture.
