Freakshow Lodi Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Trying out my new Zalto Bordeaux glasses with Cali cab. This wine is easy peasy. It will not challenge you but sometimes that’s okay. Very ripe tannins and purpley fruit and there is a whiff of pepper to give a little edge. I have a feeling this may be a highly engineered act but I guess that’s why it’s a Freakshow. — 9 days ago

The blend Freakshow is better than the Cabernet Freakshow, so at least you picked the right one. The Freakshow Zin isn’t bad either.
The Earthquake series is a step up though for only a few dollars more

Lodi Chardonnay 2018

2018 bottle has a smaller label but the bottle itself is embossed with the Michael David name.
I prefer their Freakshow Chardonnay because it's less oaky, but that's just personal preference.
A beautiful example of classically delicious Chardonnay

Inkblot Cabernet Franc 2015

Here is a beautiful wine to celebrate Cabernet Franc Day.

Dark ruby in color with a cloudy reddish rim.

Fruity nose of dried figs, blackberries, cooked cherries, raisins, vanilla, oak, licorice, spices, coffee, cola, pencil lead, peppercorn, chocolates, tobacco and light alcohol.

Full bodied and bold with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry and extremely fruity on the palate with blackberries, black currants, blackberries, cooked cherries, dried figs, tobacco, raisins, vanilla, oak, licorice, spices, chocolates, herbs and coke.

Long finish with fine grained tannins and tangy raspberries.

This is a great Cabernet Franc from Lodi, California. Fruit forward, extracted and tasty, with nice complexity and a great mouthfeel.

Good right out of the bottle and better after 2 hours of airtime, when the tannins show up.

Delicious, but might be too sweet for some. I'd like to revisit it in a year or two.

Good by itself as a sipping wine or with food. I paired it with cheeses and light appetizers.

15.5% alcohol by volume.

91 points.

$35.
