Member Review by rckr1951:

Large blackberry, blueberry, sandlewood, spice, violets with puckering tannins and juicy acidity. The aftertaste is lengthy and will with stand another 2-3 years of cellaring. Decant for now - Paul

Peppery, oaky, minty nose. Satiny as it rolls over the tongue. Fruit flavors seem to tend towards plum more than any berries. Tannin starts at the tip of the tongue and follows the wine back as it passes the edges. Reasonable acid, although I might wish for a tad more. I'm noshing on some provolone right now, and it's pretty good. US$15.59 at Total Wine.

A nice strong dry red filled with tannins. The nose is beautifully balanced and floral but the taste does not hold the same characteristics. The first taste is an intense one, but after the tannins settle and the wine aerates a bit, the boldness settles down and becomes much more balanced. An enjoyable red no doubt, you just have to get past that first sip.

This wine is a bit darker in color, with a bit of opacity at the center, easing toward some ruby at the edges. The nose on this one is quite a bit different, with some distinct woodsy notes reflecting the Petite Sirah (which also lends structure and the fantastic deep purple color), some wonderful fresh herb notes accented by anise and black cherry. The taste of this one is somewhat more fruit forward, reminiscent of the more jammy Lodi zinfandels, with flavors of black cherry and cassis that transition into some flavors of forest floor midpalate. The finish is quite nice with softer tannins leading to a more subdued, dry finish.

Wonderful blend of Petite Sirah and Petit Verdot, this powerful wine has a strong nose and would benefit from decanting and sitting a while before being consumed. On the nose is an oaky vanilla with notes of blueberry, plum, black and dark fruit. In the mouth it is meaty and peppery with hints leather, tar, and tobacco. Aggressive, chewy tannins.

Lodi, CaliforniaMichael and David are Michael and David Phillips, two brothers whose family has farmed in the Lodi region since the 1850s, cultivating wine grapes for nearly a century.Today Michael David Winery has extended itself to the 6th generation of grape growers in the family, with Kevin Phillips and Melissa Phillips Stroud now joining the family business. The family continues to emphasize the importance of quality wines with unique and eye catching labels.Farming with future generations in mind, Michael David Winery has adopted some of the most progressive sustainable farming practices in the state. All 750 acres of the familys vineyards are third party certified and the states first per ton bonus was issued for contracted growers to follow in the familys foot steps. Starting with the 2011 vintage 100% the Lodi grown fruit crushed at Michael David winery was certified sustainable.Like elephants whose size is imposing, Petite Petit is large! The wine is opaque dark purple and opens with a very inviting violet and plum-like bouquet. On the palate, this medium bodied wine is quite silky and smooth. It displays very jammy black current-like flavors with notes of dry blackberries and vanilla as well. The finish is dry, and lingers slightly. A boastful blend of 85% Petite Sirah and 15% Petit Verdot. Aged 14 months in French oak.
