Gnarled Vine Lodi Merlot 2014
Plenty of richness here, with cherry, black currants and blackberry flavors finished with an edge of sweet herbs, anise and roasted coffee. Totally dry, and the tannins are ripe and velvety fine. Tasting beautiful now, this wine will only get better with age.

The Seven Deadly Zins 2014
Wine Enthusiast -
“Savory pepper and grilled beef aromas make this wine appetizing, its rich berry and ripe plum flavors bringing excellent concentration and depth to the palate. It’s big and bold, yet polished. Firm tannins interlacing with ripeness and spiciness to keep it balanced and help proper a lingering finish.”
Score – 91 Points

Assembly Old Vine Zinfandel 2013
Meant to be a crowd pleaser, this zinfandel delivers tons of berries and spice both on the nose and palate. The abundance of acidity keeps it from turning into a flabby fruit bomb.

Jeremy Old Vine Zinfandel 2014
The deeply perfumed nose of dark violets and robust dry-ripe fruit with hints of tobacco and leather hint to the ripe and bold nature of the wine to come. On the palate, the wine opens with big, robust texture and firm yet round tannins finishing in a long, lingering parade of robust blackberry, ripe cherry preserves and plum and finishing in lingering notes of chocolate, vanilla and dark fruit.

Michael David Rapture Cabernet Sauvignon 2012
Rapture represents the very best Cabernet Sauvignon by Michael David Winery – the most pretigeous winery in Lodi. Similar to 1st growth Bordeaux, Rapture is only produced on exceptional vintage years. The grapes for this wine come from Michael Phillips own vineyard, which is rotary fermented and aged 17 months in 100% new French oak barrels. Rapture holds its own against higher priced Cabernets from other regions. It drinks like a lush vintage of Bordeaux, offering bundant structure, deep color and ample fruit with gentle tannins. The mid-palate delivers blackberry, some smoke, chocolate and espresso. Rapture has a lovely, velvety mouth feel, and a long, intense finish.
