The 2011 Michael Klouda Lodi Stem Theory ($26) is a worthy follow-up to winemaker/owner Michael Klouda’s debut wine from last Spring, the 2010 Michael Klouda Broken Vine Lodi Zinfandel. A couple of things going for Stem Theory:

  • Mr. Klouda handcrafted 100 cases of it (a big jump from Broken Vine‘s measly production of 25 cases)
  • Stem Theory is a velvety smooth yet sturdy blend of Lodi grown Cabernet Franc (70 percent), Cabernet Sauvignon (25 percent) and Petit Verdot (5 percent); crackling with pungent notes of cedar, eucalyptus and mint leaves, underscoring flowing flavor sensations of raspberry and sweetly roasted red peppers, pushed through a moderately weighted palate feel brightened by zesty acidity and modest, tight grained tannins.
