We tasted this great Zinfandel last weekend and everyone loved it! Get some while there is still some available.2012 Earthquake, Michael David, Zinfandel, Lodi

Our Impressions:
Another totally sexy, voluptuous wine, from Michael David Winery and this one is also endowed with serious power, and completely over delivers for the price. A bit more structured than the nose would indicate but immediately aromas of Black Cherry, Blackberry, and Cola jump out followed by a bit of Vanilla, toasty oak and Mint. On the palate a marriage of Raspberries and Cherries, intermixed with Olive Tapenade along with Australian Black Licorice builds in layers to a very powerful albeit graceful finish that surprises with the distinct Petite Syrah overtones that was blended in. What also stands out is its impeccable balance and class. A wine that could easily finds itself on your Thanksgiving table or to enjoy with friends.

Wine Enthusiastís Notes, 93Pts:
"Earthquake 2012 Zinfandel (Lodi). This is Zinfandel at its richest. Boysenberry, vanilla and maple syrup aromas meet up with jammy fruit flavors that coat the mouth and linger on the finish. For all its fullness, it stays balanced and dry. It does neither feel heavy in texture nor heavily oaked."

Winery Notes:
TASTING NOTES 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. WINEMAKING Over the top and shattering to the veins! These wines possess 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 Franciscoís 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. 2012 was an exceptional year for Lodi, the wine grape quality well exceeded average across all varietals. The ideal weather provided us with an uniformly great harvest. Little if any rain during harvest and warm days with cool nights made for one of the most reliable vintages in years. APPELLATION: Lodi COMPOSITION: Zinfandel with some Petite Sirah blended in. BARREL AGING: 12 months in French oak T.A.: 0.63g/100ml pH: 3.55 ALC. BY VOL.: 15.5% "
