m2 Winemaker- Layne Montgomery


This week, I immersed myself in two bottles from a winery with an intriguing name: m2 Wines. m2 is a dynamic boutique winery located in Lodi, CA but the ultra-premium wines they produce come from distinctive vineyards throughout California. Since 1999 m2 wines have been created in small lots through a combination of old world craftsmanship and modern practices.

Here's how it worked... you voted, I drank... and then I drank a little more!

Geek Out with Some Vintage Info:


  • m2 Wine Lodi California Old Vine Zinfandel 2007
    "This is classic Lodi Zin at its best. Intense, upfront rich, deep flavors of jammy blackberries and black cherries, along with strawberries and cassis. Our winemaker calls this one �Velvet Elvis."



  • m2 Wine Sierra Foothills California Trio Red Wine 2007
    "This is our signature blend of Cab, Syrah and a hint of Petite Sirah. Complex and layered flavors of red and black fruit with a long, lingering finish. Aged in hybrid French/American oak."

Wine Whore Score:





My rockin' experience summarized by the senses...


m2 Wine Lodi California Old Vine Zinfandel 2007

  • To the Eyes: Mysteriously deep purple hue

  • To the Nose: Dirty wood with a hint of minty acidity


  • To the Tongue: Velvet Elvis: gaudy and a little over the top, yet you can�t look away



m2 Wine Sierra Foothills California Trio Red Wine 2007

  • To the Eyes: Overflowing crimson waves of blood

  • To the Nose: Fruit roll-up sprinkled with a hint of spice


  • To the Tongue: Great blend between tart and sweet exits in a graceful finish


Summary
Like Elvis, both of these wines were fun and entertaining to the palate. Trio made for a great red blend with lots of great character (especially after a good bit of air). Both wines were full of flavor, fun, and well crafted. One taste and you'll be "all shook up" with enjoyment.

Cheers!
