Rapture represents the very best Cabernet Sauvignon by Michael David Winery. Similar to 1st growth Bordeaux, Rapture is only produced on exceptional vintage years. The grapes for this wine come from Michael Phillips own 36 acre vineyard located on the west side of Lodi. It is rotary fermented and aged 17 months in 100% new French oak barrels that are specifically purchased for this wine. Meanwhile, David Phillips after tasting our first vintage (2003) just after fermentation had a 'rapturous,’ experience, almost like religion, hence the name Rapture. With limited production, don't be left behind!
Intense and perfumed with sensual black current and sweet herb. Mind blowing velvety texture that has become synonymous with Rapture. Layers of espresso and ripe black cherry cola with some vanilla and polished tannins.
