The first Lodi Cabernet Franc wine ever produced by Michael-David Winery and one of the few produced from Lodi. This varietal originated from the Bordeaux and Loire Valley regions of France and has been grown with success in many other countries. The grapes for this wine comes from a 25 year old 9 acre vineyard located on the west side of Lodi, no more than a stones throw away from the winery. Ready to drink now or could be set down for a few years.
Our Cab Franc displays a pronounced perfume with notes of raspberries, black currant, violet and graphite.
Cab Franc blended with small amounts of Cabernet Sauvignon and Petite Sirah.
995 Cases produced.

These days, Michael and David Phillips represent the fifth generation of growers in Lodi, and things are changing. With 650 acres of premium wine grapes, there is plenty of room for experimentation and innovation. The vineyards are irrigated by the Mokelumne River, which carries crystal-clear water from the Sierra Nevada Mountains, depositing minerals into the rich soils upon which the grapes thrive. Though not certified organic, Michael David Winery strives to use all natural methods including integrated pest management, beneficial insects for pest control, trellising, leaf pulling and natural mined sulfur for mildew control.
