Michael and David Phillips Freakshow Cabernet Sauvignon Lodi 2016

External Review by We Speak Wine:

Known for taking the road less traveled, Michael David Winery has always stood apart from the crowd. Whether it be their outlandish brands and packaging or their quirky personalities, Michael and David are definitely on a stage of their own and this wine showcases just that. The fruit for this wine comes from the original “super freak” himself, Michael Phillips’ Cabernet Sauvignon vineyard located only a medicine balls toss away from the winery. Tasting Notes: Quickly becoming one of Michael David’s most sought-after wines, this brute of a Cab is midnight in color and medium in body. A myriad of French oak influenced aromas fill your glass, accompanied by toasted hazelnuts and blackberry cobbler. Flavors of ripe Mission figs and hints of clove and cinnamon give way to velvety tannins, balanced acidity and dark ripe fruits. Aging: 15 months French oak Alcohol: 14.5% Acid: 0.62g/100ml pH: 3.61

History: Known for taking the road less traveled, Michael David Winery has always stood apart from the crowd. Whether it be their outlandish brands and packaging or their quirky personalities, Michael and David are denitely on a stage of their own and this wine showcases just that. e fruit for this brute of a Cab comes from the original “super freak,” Michael Phillips’ vineyard located only a medicine balls toss away from the winery. Growing Conditions: An unusually hot summer gave way to the earliest harvest Lodi had seen in 8 years as we started to press Chardonnay on August 4th, 2014. e 2014 vintage brought its challenges as Zinfandel, Petite Sirah and everything in between reached its optimal ripeness within days of each other, needing to be picked at the same time! Our nal lot of Cabernet Sauvignon was picked on October 17th, marking the end of the fast and furious harvest season. Composition: Cabernet Sauvignon with a touch of Petite Sirah Time in barrel: 17 months French oak T.A.: 0.62g/100ml pH: 3.61 Alc.: 14.5%

History: Known for taking the road less traveled, Michael David Winery has always stood apart from the crowd. Whether it be their outlandish brands and packaging or their quirky personalities, Michael and David are denitely on a stage of their own and this wine showcases just that. e fruit for this brute of a Cab comes from the original “super freak,” Michael Phillips’ vineyard located only a medicine balls toss away from the winery. Growing Conditions: The 2013 harvest started in early August with Chardonnay and Pinot Noir for our sparkling wine. e rst of our red grapes came in early September, with the later ripening varietals such as Old Vine Zin coming in early October. After a heavy crop in 2012, the ’13 harvest was expected to be smaller than average, but we still saw large crop yields across most varietals. Moderate temperatures throughout the summer allowed the fruit to develop full avors while retaining acidity. Composition: Cabernet Sauvignon with a touch of Petite Sirah Time in barrel: 14 months French oak T.A.: 0.63g/100ml pH: 3.55 Alc.: 14.5%
