Michael David Syrah 6Th Sense
| Wine Enthusiast 90 points (May 2016)
This wine is a big one, going all out to make friends. New-oak aromas like clove, cedar and cinnamon explode out of the glass, then flavors of dark chocolate and cherry spread across the palate for a generous-almost thick-impression. Fine layers of tannins and firm acidity blanket the texture.

Another top-notch wine is their 2013 Syrah 6th Sense. This wine, from Syrah planted in 1982 in the sandy soils of Lodi, has a touch of Petite Sirah blended in, but shows beautiful camphor, acacia flower and blackberry fruit, a full-bodied mouthfeel, sweet tannin and a lush, velvety textured, layered mouthfeel. Remarkably, they make about 60,000 cases of this wine and it is a winner.
