Earthquake Zinfandel

2010

Earthquake
Zinfandel

Over the top and shattering to the veins, all varietals under the Earthquake label are Michael David’s reserve level wines.  These wines posses major concentration and daring flavor with only a limited production offered each year.  The original is the Earthquake Zin that comes from an old Lodi vineyard planted around the time of San Francisco’s great Earthquake in 1906.  While mulling over a label name in the vineyard, Michael Phillips thought it only seemed fitting to relate this intense wine with the historical quake.  With over 15% alcohol and bold tannins, these dark and voluminous will definitely leave your senses quivering.

"Ripe and zesty, with baked berry pie aromas and appealing flavors of huckleberry, fresh sage and licorice." -TF
