2019 Michael David Ancient Vine Cinsaut

Having not produced a Cinsaut 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 Cinsaut comes from Lodi’s oldest producing vineyard and one of the world’s oldest Cinsaut 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.

Tasting Notes
One of our most anticipated releases each vintage, the Bechthold Vineyard Cinsaut continues to shine with the 2019 vintage release. Ripe smashed cranberry and raspberry fruit swirl together with whiffs of sweet brown sugar and vanilla. Light in body but loaded with bright and juicy flavors of strawberry, cherry and cranberry with just the slightest hint of oak on the finish.
