Michael David Petite Sirah Lodi Earthquake 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Up front blueberry syrup, black cherry and coffee bean shake up the senses, finishing with warm cigar box cedar and vanillan flavors. Brawny, solid tannins send aftershocks down the throat creating a seemingly endless finish. When all is said and done this Petite Sirah leaves its mark of destruction, leaving teeth and glasses stained of its inky dark color.

Very smokey and oak with a lot of butterscotch and caramel with clove and black tea on the nose. Big and flat in the mouth with a hint of simple but rich black cherry/boysenberry fruit. A bit woody tannin on the back end but this is plump and rich. 86pts

This wine is an explosion of berries. Jammy blackberries, blueberries and raspberries with tones of coffee or mocha on the finish. "Smokehouse" aromas waft past the very ample aromas of ripe plummy fruit. On the tongue, the fruit is sweet, and the texture is smooth. This is a big wine and requires at least an hour of decanting ... an overnight would be even better. Pair with grilled steak, chops or sausage.

Wowo-zowo! What an awesome wine. Deep purple color, heavy stained tears, full bodied with just the right amount of tannin and huge fruit characteristics - black cherry, raspberry, plum - plus chocolate, coffee, and I could keep going on and on. Had this with dinner (tartiflette) and then continued having it with our double chocolate truffle raspberry brownie cheesecake. YUM!

Coffee on the nose, followed by chocolate berries, meaty & chewy.

WA 90pts - According to Robert Parker - Absolutely outstanding is the 2006 Earthquake Petite Sirah. This is a stunning example of Petite Sirah, exhibiting graphite, blueberry liqueur, blackberry notes, and acacia flowers in a powerful full-bodied style. Remarkably, the tannins are sweet, and in spite of sensational concentration, and a mouth-staining level of extract, this wine is very supple and delicious already, although I have no doubt, given the anti-oxidant attributes of Petite Sirah, that it can last for a decade or more.
