The grapes for this wine come from Jon Wetmore's vineyard, positioned on the northeast side of Lodi. Every year when compared to other Petit Verdot vineyards, the quality of this lot is at the top of its class. Because of the high level of tannin, color, and concentration, this wine is always put into new barrels early in the harvest season. Ready to drink now or could be set down for a few years.
All of the Inkblots are intense, yet complex- rich on the attack, but very elegant. Spice, tangy ripe berries and a touch of licorice are prevalent in this vintage, but it's in the finish that the fruit really sings. High-toned and vibrant with soft, sumptuous tannic structure.
