From Michael David Winery:
Bing cherry, toasted French vanilla bean and a hint of juniper berry on the nose. On the palate, fruit and toasted oak flavors are complemented with refined tannins and flavors of dark ripe plums, mission figs and toasted legumes.
Known for taking the road less traveled, Michael David Winery has always stood apart from the crowd. Whether it be their outlandish brands and packaging or their quirky personalities, Michael and David are definitely on a stage of their own and this wine showcases just that. The fruit for this brute of a Cab comes from the original “super freak,” Michael Phillips’ vineyard located only a medicine balls toss away from the winery.
An unusually hot summer gave way to the earliest harvest Lodi had seen in 8 years as we started to press Chardonnay on August 4th, 2014. The 2014 vintage brought its challenges as Zinfandel, Petite Sirah and everything in between reached its optimal ripeness within days of each other, needing to be picked at the same time! Our final lot of Cabernet Sauvignon was picked on October 17th, marking the end of the fast and furious harvest season.
Alc.by Vol.: 14.5% Composition: Cabernet Sauvignon with a touch of Petite Sirah Time in barrel: 17 months French oak
