Earthquake Zinfandel, Lodi- 2007- Color- black amethyst. Nose- Vanilla, jam dominates the nose and is peppered by, well, pepper. Maintains a slight heat, but this is to be expected of a 16% ABV wine. Taste- Vanilla and sweet California raisins decorate your mouth with an overwhelmingly heavy mouth feel. Very dark and sweet. Reminds everyone of a port...I mean it REALLY feels like port. Oak adds structure to the heavy wine but is not noticeable in the actual taste, Its like not seeing the I-beams in a building, you don't see it, but you know its there. The only presence the oak may have is letting on a leather note witch keeps the wine from losing its form and keeps the flavors focused. This wine I imagine is almost too big to go with any meal, but is an amazing specimen of what zinfandel is capable of. Score: 93

What a fantastic Zin...I've tried many Zins and this one is the best yet! This is a HUGE favorite with WTC (Wine Tasters Club)..big, bold, full bodied, dark fruits, some chocolate notes-a real winner in South Jersey!

Giant, deep and full-bodied, this bad boy opens smooth and rich, melding with black cherry, cocoa, coffee and vanilla aromas accentuated with smoky overtones. Delightfully intense, with a long and pleasing finish.

On the nose, there were blueberries, blackberries, nutmeg, cloves, and alcohol followed by a touch of cinnamon, vanilla, and earth. In the mouth, there were blueberries, boysenberries, blackberries, and baking spices, mixed with vanilla, earth, and alcohol. The wine had medium tannins and a medium-to-full, velvety body.

Fantastic Zin. Dark fruit and hint of vanilla/oak on the nose. Big, explosive, jammy, dark fruit on the pallet. High heat on the back end, yet extremely well balanced. Loooong, smooth, silky finish. This is the best wine I've had this year. At $25, not an everyday wine, but still cheap enough to drink somewhat regularly. From the same winery as 7 Deadly Zins and Don's Lodi Red. I'm really impressed with their wines. Will try there Earthquake Cab and Petite Syrah next.

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.

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.

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.

One of the most complex offerings here, the 2004 Zinfandel Moore Earthquake Vineyard, offers hints of raspberries, anise seed, and earth along with beautiful purity, a full-bodied, opulent style, and good underlying acidity as well as definition It shoul

Dried plum and deep cocoa on the nose. Brambly blackberry and deep cocoa balance out the bold tannins. Warm, lasting finish.

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.

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.

Winemaker's Notes:

92-94 points Robert Parker: One of Turley's flagship Zinfandels is the elegant 2007 Zinfandel Moore Earthquake Vineyard. Made from very old vines, it possesses a Southern Rhone-like black currant and kirsch aromas interwoven with notions of licorice, lavender, and damp earth. It is a spicy, pure, ripe, round, velvety-textured 2007 to consume over the next 7-8 years. (Dec 2008)
