Michael David Earthquake Zinfandel Lodi 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

Opaque, dark purple with a hint of cured tobacco on the nose. Exploding on the palates bursting with jammy black raspberry, warm spice and of course big on character.

An intense dark purple color with a hot, slightly alcoholic nose. Smells of vanilla oak and sweet blackberries. On the palate, I thought the tannins were soft but the fruit seemed over-ripe - I would have preferred to see a little more acidity, but that's personal preference. Nonetheless, this one strikes me as a little unbalanced.

Med-heavy for a Zin. Smoky/bacon flavor, dark jammy fruit.

The outstanding 2011 Earthquake Zin (100% Zinfandel; 15,000 cases produced) was aged for 10 months in French oak. Peppery and spicy with plenty of berry fruit (cherries and raspberries) intertwined with dusty, loamy soil, incense and a Provencal garrigue-like note jump from the glass of this impressive wine. Over the top and shattering to the veins! 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. - WineryVARIETALS: Zinfandel with some Petite Sirah and Syrah blended inpH: 3.62TA: 0.63ALC: 15.5%

Earthquake is such a perfect name for Michael-David's wines. Not just for the historical significance of the quake that hit back in 1906 but because these wines are Earth shattering!

This is an interesting Zinfandel from Lodi, an areanot known for particularly high quality wine. The limited production (6,000 cases) Earthquake Zin includes small quantities of Petite Sirah and Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend. Tipping the scales at
