producer: Michael David. They also make 7 Deadly Zins, which a ton of people have tagged me while drinking.
region: Lodi, CA. Lodi’s mostly known for Zin but they’re also doing a few Cinsault-only bottles lately. The Bechthold Vineyard is the oldest producing vineyard (128 years old) in Lodi. My friend who writes Hawk Wakawaka Wine Reviews said that a lot of wineries (like Turley, Scholium Project, Bonny Doon) also get their grapes from this vineyard.
yum factors: Really light but packed with flavor. Some raspberry, a little blueberry, and a little herb at the end. Good acidity. Probably could’ve used a few more years to calm down a little but felt very lively. Really liked it and kind of perfect for a light fall wine.
price: $25, great value for this wine
