Michael David Winery Inkblot Petit Verdot 2014, Lodi, California

The first varietal Petit Verdot wine produced by Michael David Winery and one of the few every produced from Lodi. The grapes for this wine came from Jon Wetmore’s vineyard positioned on the Northeast side of Lodi. 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 level of tannin, color, and concentration, this wine is always put into new barrels early in the harvest season. 100% new French oak. Aged 17 months. “Inkblot” pays homage to those left unnoted and simply left to be just “blending varietals”. Here these varietals find a niche of their own, allowing a peek into another side of Lodi, the dark side.
