Over the top and shattering to the veins, all varietals under the Earthquake label are Michael and Davidís reserve level wines. These wines possess major concentration and daring flavor with only a limited production offered each year. The original was the Earthquake Zin that came from an old Lodi vineyard planted around the time of San Franciscoís great earthquake in 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.
What Makes You Quake?
An attactive bouquet of vanilla, violets and menthol. Upfront cherry notes, though a tasty vanilla-mocha flavor combination captures the palate. Tannins kick in by way of the finish.
Make your toes curl with a mesquite grilled, bone-in rib eye steak, slathered with blue cheese butter and grilled onions. This Cab will wash that baby down! (Add a side of veggies if you must.)
Cabernet Sauvignon blended with just a smidgen of Cab Franc. Aged in French and American oak for 25 months.
