Trick or Treat!
We are getting ready for a great Halloween with a lot of fun, and we'd like to treat you to some great sale prices on some amazing wines from...
Michael and David Phillips are two brothers whose family has farmed in the Lodi region since the 1850's, and cultivating wine grapes for nearly a century.
Today the 6th generation of Phillips family grape growers continue to emphasize the importance of quality wines with unique and eye catching labels. They are extremely aware of their "carbon footprint", adopting some of the most progressive sustainable farming practices in California!
All 750 acres of the family's vineyards are third party certified and as of the 2011 vintage 100% the Lodi grown fruit crushed at Michael David winery was certified sustainable!
Tonight, we are happy to present all treats and no tricks, courtesy of Michael David Winery. Here's what we're tasting this Halloween!
2012 "6th Sense" Syrah -
2010 "Petite Petit" -
2011 "7 Deadly Zins" - $17.99: Old vine Zinfandel taken from 7 superior vineyards, each offering its own level of enjoyment, plus a splash of Petit Sirah makes it fuller and richer with more texture and deeper fruit. It reveals hints of tapenade, new saddle leather, black cherries and black currants. It offers a lot of flavor for its price - even more so when we put it on sale!
2012 "Freakshow" Cabernet Sauvignon - $21.99: This wine is FREAKing amazing! Over each vintage, the intensity has been kicked up exponentially. This 4th incarnation has more of everything... more depth, more ripe fruit, more pizazz! Nicely balanced with notes of pomegranate and smoke wrapped in oak. Warning - it's gulpable!
2010 "Inkblot" Petit Verdot - $37.99: Here's a real treat - intense, yet complex... rich on the attack, and yet very elegant! The grapes for this wine come from Jon Wetmore's "top of its class" vineyard. Every year when compared to other Petit Verdot vineyards, the quality of this lot is unmistakable.
Because of the high level of tannin, color, and concentration, this wine is always put into new barrels early in the harvest season. Spice, tangy ripe berries and a touch of licorice are prevalent, but it's in the finish that the fruit really sings. High-toned and vibrant with soft, sumptuous tannic structure.
Note: While Wine World truly enjoys the festivities at this time of year (Halloween is one of our favorite holidays!), and we love the creativity and fun that our customers put into their costumes, we remind you that all masks and "props" must be left outside the store.
We're sure you understand, and we thank you in advance for your compliance!
