Having not produced a Cinsault since 1999, this vineyard gave Michael David the opportunity to expand its Rhone program and get back to bottling smaller lots.  Planted in 1886 by Joseph Spenker, our Cinsault comes from Lodi’s oldest producing vineyard and one of the world’s oldest Cinsault plantings. Farmed by Michael’s son, Kevin Phillips, this vineyard is head trained and dry farmed just like it was when it was when planted well over 100 years ago, and is the only vineyard designated wine in our entire portfolio.

Tasting Notes
Cinsault's translucent cranberry color hints towards the wine's lighter, subtle styling. Medium bodied with bright cranberry, red berry, leather, and a hint of oak linger on the finish.
