Michael David Ink Blot 2013 Petit Verdot

This is the first varietal of Petit Verdot wine produced by Michael David Winery and one of the few ever produced from Lodi. The grapes from 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. Lodi Petit Verdot is a unique wine drinking experience! With an inky purple color that is sure to stain even the pearliest white teeth, this wine is aptly part of our Inkblot line. Intense aromas of leather, earth, and hickory smoke give way to black fruit as the wine breathes. Dark plum, black currant and a hint of spice paired with polished tannins create a full-bodied and flavorful Petit Verdot.
