"Inkblot is Lodi winery Michael David’s first Cabernet Franc, a relatively small production wine with MD’s signature smoky, toasty coconut aromas, thick and raspberry jammy. Aged 15 months in French oak, it would be a hit with big wine lovers but doesn’t exhibit Cab Franc’s herbaceousness, which some people will be happy about, others will not. Includes small amounts of Cab Sauvignon and Petite Sirah. " (WE)

Winery Notes:
The first Lodi Cabernet Franc wine ever produced by Michael-David Winery and one of the few produced from Lodi. This va- rietal originated from the Bordeaux and Loire Valley regions of France and has been grown with success in many other countries. The grapes for this wine comes from a 25 year old 9 acre vineyard located on the west side of Lodi, no more than a stones throw away from the winery. Ready to drink now or could be set down for a few years.

Our Cab Franc displays a pronounced per fume with notes of raspberries, black currant, violet and graphite. Cab Franc blended with small amounts- of Cabernet Sauvignon and Petite Sirah
