This bottle was one of many that accompanied 2011 Thanksgiving Dinner, and we shared it with 11 others so I only had a small sample and it was gone ever so quickly. Good nose, spicy and a long dry finish. Although it was loaded, 16% alcohol, and I usually notice that first when drinking wine, I did not with this bottle.

Registering 10.0 on the Richter scale, this is one powerful Zinfandel. Massive flavors and aromas of blueberry, boysenberry and hints of smoked bacon. The flavors are incredibly ripe, round and succulent. As for the aftershock, er, aftertaste, it's off the scale as well, with plenty of ripe black and blue fruits lingering on and on. It's easily an order of magnitude better than most.

Some Zins go by the expression "you drink what you paid for." This wine taste like the price. Let me paint you a picture. You pour a glass and immediately the sky turns a deep burgundy color. The scent of plum, cinnamon and mulled berry lets you know that your mouth had better be prepared for a rumbling of black raspberry and vanilla. Just when you thought it was all said and done, your palate gets hit with dark chocolate, black pepper, black cherry, raisin and leather. Don't worry, it's all over... for now.

The medium to full-bodied 2005 Earthquake Zin reveals attractive up-front fruit, spice, tobacco leaf, and ground pepper characteristics. Drink it over the next 2-3 years.

This is an interesting Zinfandel from Lodi, an area not known for particularly high quality wine. The limited production (6,000 cases) 2004 Earthquake Zin includes small quantities of Petite Sirah and Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend. Tipping the scales at a whopping 15.9% alcohol, it is a big, burly, earthy Zinfandel with abundant spice, fruit, and glycerin as well as a locomotive-like feel going across the palate. This well-balanced effort may merit an outstanding score from readers who like their Zinfandels muscular and super-charged. It will last for 4-5 years.

Winemaker's Notes:

Groundshaking Zinfandel fruit awakens the nose with dried plum and deep cocoa. Brambley blackberry and rich cocoa balance out the bold tannins, leaving the mouth with a warm lasting finish.
