Michael David is going outside of Lodi to make this, for them, small-production wine, sourced from vineyards near Hopland owned and run by the Nelson family. It remains true to the MD style having spent 15 months in American oak with blackberry pie, a handful of earth and spicy cinnamon on the finish. Fleshy and full and thick as syrup.
