Michael David Inkblot Tannat

Michael David Winery Inkblot Tannat 2010: Getting stuck in Lodi isn’t such a problem anymore thanks to quality-minded producers like Michael David Winery, which uses the wisdom of six generations and sustainable practices to farm 650 acres along the Mokelumne River.

This tannat, a deep, dark, smooth operator sourced from five of the mere 140 acres in the entire state planted to the grape, is just one of the winery’s bold and exciting varietal adventures, which also include carignan, cab franc, petit verdot, cinsault, and many blends.
