Two of the wines selected for our dinner:

2010 Freakshow Cabernet

“One of the best labels in the wine business is no doubt Michael David’s FREAKSHOW. It offers abundant notes of espresso roast, melted chocolate, and cassis, which jump from the glass! This is a big wine with plenty of color and richness, no hard edges.” – Robert Parker 8.30.13

2010 Inkblot Cab Franc

“As there is not a lot of Cabernet Franc made in Lodi, this is a rare chance to see what it can be. This wine is imprinted with Michael David’s typical big, bold flavors. It’s an aromatic combination of perfume, cinnamon spice and toasty oak. The palate is dense and smoky, with strong raspberry and currant fruit.” – V.B.

The Story of Michael David Winery

“Michael” and “David” are Michael and David Phillips, two brothers whose family has farmed in the Lodi region since the 1850’s, cultivating wine grapes for nearly a century.
Today Michael David Winery has extended itself to the 6th generation of grape growers in the family, with Kevin Phillips and Melissa Phillips Stroud now joining the family business. The family continues to emphasize the importance of quality wines with unique and eye catching labels.
Farming with future generations in mind, Michael David Winery has adopted some of the most progressive sustainable farming practices in the state. All 750 acres of the family’s vineyards are third party certified and the states first per ton bonus was issued for contracted growers to follow in the family’s foot steps. Starting with the 2011 vintage 100% the Lodi grown fruit crushed at Michael David winery was certified sustainable.
