Here's another boldly rich wine from Lodi and David Michael. The old vines in Lodi bring such intensity to the grapes that these wines are brimming with flavor and concentration. This wine is a blend of 71% Syrah, 25% Petite Sirah and
4% Souzao. 90% of the wine aged 15 months in French oak and 10% aged for 18 months in American oak before the final blend was made. Wine Enthusiast Magazine made this an Editors' Choice. They scored it 92 points and said "Dark, dense with fruit flavor and thickly tannic, this full-bodied wine is a monument to concentration, ripeness and richness. Massive tannins are matched
by huge jammy fruit, with a sense of layering and depth that is impressive and satisfying to experience."
