From the bottle:
“Unmask the true identity of this alluring wine. These grapes are grown in the Lodi appellation, with its warm days and cool summer nights. Full of fruit, this wine will tantalize you with its integrated flavors.
Fresh off our Bulk Buy review of the 2010 Michael David Winery Incognito White comes the other Incognito blend, the 2008 Red. And while the Incognito White is a blend of five different varieties, the Red ups the ante with eight (!) varieties in its blend. But can all these different varieties possibly play well together? Let’s find out!
The 2008 Michael David Winery Incognito Red has aromas of ripe fruit, lots of spice, blackberry, and a little vanilla. This wine has a great fruit and spice combination and a good silky mouth-feel along with great prominent but soft tannins. It all ends with a very satisfying finish. Overall a great wine that demonstrates we can all get along.
