Interesting Rhône Blend from Michael and David Phillips.
The Lodi winemakers always surprise you by the balance of their wines despite their high alcohol contact.
Drank with grilled mutton chops with herbs in olive oil.
A good match. Surprising complexity for a central valley product.

Nice. Super fruity, though. Candied.... something. Strawberry? ETA: Tried it again and it is just too sweet for my taste right now.

Undrinkable last night. Left it corked over night And its a bit better now. Still huge fruit and toasty oak, but less abrasive, leads acidic.

Ripe blueberry and plum on the nose, hint of black pepper. Not fully ripe plum, little green on the finish.

A wine with our tasting. We are not fans of Rhone style wines.
