Best of Class awards went to Michael-David's 2009 Incognito White ($18) and the http://www.bokischvineyards.com/" target="_blank">Bokisch 2008 Terra Alta Vineyard Grenache ($18).

Double Gold medals - where all judges in a panel agree the wine is gold-worthy - were bestowed upon the Quinta Cruz 2009 Silvaspoons Vineyard Verdelho ($20), McCay Cellars 2007 Truluck's Zinfandel ($28), and http://www.ripkenwine.com/" target="_blank">Ripken 2008 Petite Sirah ($25). Quinta Cruz is located in Santa Cruz.

Bokisch and http://www.macchiawines.com/" target="_blank">Macchia took home the most Gold for Lodi wines, with Bokisch tacking-on their 2009 Clements Hills Albariño ($16) and 2008 Tempranillo ($21). Macchia scored with their 2009 vintages of Voluptuous Zin, Oblivious Zin, and Rebellious Petite Sirah, all for $24 each.
