Lust Zinfandel

2012

Lust
Zinfandel

Lust is a deliciously smooth, showy, and seductive Zinfandel that lives up to its name. Velvety and full of jam, this wine shows lots of dark fruit with some savory qualities.

Each year only the most outstanding small lots are isolated from over 100 lots 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 specially for this program. After being aged for 18 months we blended in 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. 

Farmed sustainably following the Lodi Rules program
