Michael David Inkblot Petite Verdot 2013


SKU 23422


Lodi Petit Verdot is a unique wine drinking experience! With an inky purple color that is sure to stain even the pearliest white teeth, this wine is aptly part of our "Inkblot" line. Intense aromas of leather, earth, and hickory smoke give way to black fruit as the wine breathes. Dark plum, black currant and a hint of spice paired with polished tannins create a full-bodied and flavorful Petit Verdot.

Wine EnthusiastThis is a high-powered, full-bodied wine. The aromas are like toasted baguette slices, vanilla and nutmeg, the flavors do a good impression of dark chocolate and blackberry, and the texture is saturated with fine tannins that give all those flavors plenty of support and lip-smacking appeal.

Wine AdvocateA new cuvée, which I have never tasted from them, is their 2011 Petit Verdot Inkblot (100% Petit Verdot). I tasted two vintages, the 2011 and 2013. They produce about 1,000-1,400+ cases of this wine, and while I'm not a great believer in Petit Verdot standing on its own (this one is aged in 100% new oak), these two vintages could make a believer of even skeptics like myself. The 2013 Petit Verdot Inkblot has similar quality, with slightly more alcohol, but is a big, rich, concentrated wine with nearly identical character to the 2011.
