Earthquake Zinfandel 2010

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.

Over the top and shattering to the veins! 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 same time of San Francisco's great Earthquake of 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 wines will definitely leave your senses quivering.A heady nose, beginning with sweetly concentrated blackberry and bing cherry aromas, ripe without being overripe or pruny, underscored by pepper grinder spice and pungent, toasty, sweet oak. - WineryWinemakers: Adam Mettler, Derek DevriesTechnical Data:T.A.: 0.62pH: 3.70Alc.: 16.0%Composition:Zinfandel with Petite Sirah blended inTime in barrel:12 months in American oakBottled:September 3rd, 2011 ** SOLD OUT **

This is a jam-filled, expressive example of Zinfandel. Plum, cinnamon, and mulled berry fruit notes fill the nose as black raspberry and vanilla notes roll throughout the palate which lead to some pie crust and mocha on the finish.

No doubt Michael-David is going for a certain style with Earthquake, describing it as ldquo;over the top and shattering to the veins.rdquo; Indeed. This Lodi Zin will knock your socks and several other pieces of clothing off with its smoky, greasy, hot and sweet berry pie flavors, with a side of bacon to boot. True to its style, this is one very big boy.

Dieser Wein besitzt eine große Konzentration und einen kräftigen, intensiven Geschmack. Kräftig, voluminös, lässt die Sinne beben. Duft nach Marmelade von dunklen Früchten, Pflaumen und Zimt. Am Gaumen feiner Geschmack von schwarzen Himbeeren und Vanille. Langer genussvoller Abgang mit Mokkanoten.
