Known for taking the road less traveled, Michael David Winery has always stood apart from the crowd. Whether it be their outlandish brands and packaging or their quirky personalities, Michael and David are definitely on a stage of their own and this wine showcases just that. The fruit for this brute of a Cab comes from the original “super freak,” Michael Phillips’ vineyard located only a medicine balls toss away from the winery. Tasting Notes
Bing cherry, toasted French vanilla bean and a hint of juniper berry on the nose. In the palate oak and fruit flavors are complemented with refined tannins and flavors of dark ripe plums, mission figs and toasted legumes.
“The 2012 vintage validates our decision to elevate the black-fruit intensity in the wines without abandoning our house style. I didn’t think a wine like this was possible for Jordan twenty years ago. Our 2012 is one of the most complex, balanced Jordan Cabernet Sauvignons I’ve ever tasted upon release.” – Winemaker Rob Davis

The Gibson family's organically farmed ranch has been Miner's prime source for Sangiovese since 1997. Cooler growing conditions near the Mendocino coast allow grapes to ripen at an even pace for balanced fruit and acid structure. This Sangiovese is readily approachable with bright plum-currant flavors and hints of cedar on the palate.
"The 2012 Hoopes Vineyard Napa Valley Cabernet is made with the same care and thoughtfulness of our single vineyard series. A blend of fruit from three different sources in the Yountville and Oakville appellations, this stunning wine over-delivers for the price on intensity and richness “ – Lindsay Hoopes, Second Generation Proprietor
“On the nose it presents with sweet and oral elements. It reminds me of raspberry violet candies, sweet cherries, and delicate rosewater. On the mouthfeel, the wine is lush and generous, with a hint of sweetness and a full, but supple, texture. Its nish is focused and lengthy with an acidity that creates an integrated nish.” – Anne Vawter, Winemaker

The Hudson Vineyard Syrah is always a stand out in the Rudius portfolio for its considerably French-leaning style and and incredible balance. While many Northern California Syrahs are defined by their extract and viscosity, the Hudson is something altogether different. Both the mouthfeel and aromatics are dominated by secondary characteristics, brought to the forefront by beautifully balanced acidity.
Forrest mushrooms, roasted game meat and accents of cardamon spice are highlighted by just-ripe fig and a fresh brininess, owing to the distinct minerality of Hudson’s soils. The Rudius signature subtlety with oak on thier Rhones serves to preserve the pristine fruit character of the Alban Clone, while the purely native fermentation leaves the wine’s inherent aromatics intact. This is one California Syrah that strongly speak to its origin, and will undoubtedly remind you why you fell in love with the varietal and the terroir in the first place.
