Lust Zinfandel

2011

Lust
Zinfandel

Each year only the most outstanding small lots are isolated from the over 100 produced at Michael David to bottle under Lust.  This vintage, three lots stood out as being the most structured while displaying a ton of ripe berry and spice characteristics we all expect to come from a Zinfandel.  To enhance this wine all three lots were blended together and put into new American oak barrels that were purchased especially for this program.  After being aged for 18 months we blended with a little Petite Sirah to increase the already great depth, color, and tannin structure.  Ready to drink now, but with the hefty amount of tannins this wine could easily be set down for a few years.  

Lithe and jammy, this wine is hedonistic. Showing lots of dark fruit with some savory qualities. A deliciously smooth, showy, and seductive Zin that lives up to its name.
