Michael David Winery, Inkblot Petite Sirah 2020, Lodi, California

Known for giving a platform to grapes that are usually used as ‘blending varietals,’ the newest addition to our Inkblot family is none other than Petite Sirah. A favorite among our winemakers, Petite Sirah can be found in many of our wines for its concentration and color, but as a stand alone varietal this grape is seriously impressive! Tasting notes: True to its name, the 2018 Inkblot Petite Sirah is dark and inky in color with huckleberry, Maraschino cherry and cedar on the nose. Rich and weighty, this full-bodied wine reveals flavors of boysenberry, dark chocolate and peppery spice carried through by a long finish with smooth, polished tannins. Aged 22 months – 100% French oak (45% new)
