Michael David Cinsault Ancient Vine 2011

Having not produced a Cinsault since 1999, this newly leased vineyard gave Michael David the opportunity to expand its Rhone program and get back to bottling smaller lots. Planted in 1885 by Joseph Spenker, our Cinsault comes from Lodis oldest producing vineyard and one of the worlds oldest Cinsault plantings. Now farmed by Kevin Phillips and the vineyard team, this vineyard is head trained and dry farmed just how it was when planted 128 years ago. [+]
