Wine Review: This ruby colored Syrah from Lodi opens with a black raspberry bouquet with hints of blueberry. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and juicy. The flavor profile is a blend of red currant and blueberry with hints of cedar plank. I also detected hints of red plum and rosemary. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins stick around for a little while. I would pair this good value Syrah with a juicy bacon burger. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: From a black grape that makes red wine, the 6th Sense remains a huge player in the Michael David lineup. Super-saturated, big and juicy, it makes a bright, tangy impact. Full of flavor in the same deep-red tones as the aromas, tannins are tame. The mid-palate offers plum and blackberry, with a touch of mulberry.
