Michael David Winery Inkblot Petit Verdot 2017
Every year when compared to other Petit Verdot vineyards, the quality of this lot is at the top of its class. Because of the high levels of tannin, color, and concentration, this wine is always put into new barrels early in the harvest season. The wine displays an abundance of soft tannins, raspberry preserves, Dutch cocoa, and anise. Ready to drink now or could be set down for a few years. Please enjoy this truly special wine.
Petit Verdot with a bit of Petite Sirah blended in. The Phillips family has been farming since Andrew Harshner and his wife Lucille homesteaded 160 acres near the town of Lodi, following the Civil War in the 1860s. Originally devoted to vegetables, the Phillips' farm evolved to include many different fruits, including 15 different wine varietals that were shipped throughout the country during Prohibition with instructions on "how not to have the grapes turn into wine." These days, Michael and David Phillips represent the fifth generation of growers in Lodi with their 650 acres of premium wine grapes.
