M2 2011 Trio Blend
I would really like to get my nose back into this guy. I feel like I missed something. It was talked up to me by someone I met and also in the tasting room. The talk started with the 2010 but folks were raving about this wine. After tasting the offerings at M2, I was disappointed. I enjoyed their juice. When I got to this, all I could thing was that all the pieces were there but I was left blank. I got some great strawberries notes and delightful oak in the nose. I found it to be made well and without any “sharp corners.” However, I found the adventure to be fairly uneventful. Some nice fruit and a spice finish. Still wondering what I missed.

Winemaker Notes: “Kirschenman Vineyard, on the east side of Lodi is our source for this new-world interpretation of one of Spain’s greatest grapes. The 2011 is oaky, smokey, fruit and complex.”
