Michael David Winery 2012 Earthquake Zinfandel (Lodi AVA) California - USA
Availability: BCLDB stores
Cost: $41.99 + tax
Date Tasted: July 8th, 2016
Tasting Notes: Wow. An Earthquake indeed. Your senses will be shaking after this one. Nose and palate are super intense with deep, dark fruit and menthol notes with added layers of liquorice allsorts candy, charred oak, flat spice, tobacco and plum sauce.
Amazingly, the 15.5% alcohol is effortlessly integrated, avoiding any obvious 'hotness' on the palate. Already aged beautifully at 4 years of age, with many years of life yet should you want to wait and tempt further development. Drink now-2020.
