Michael David Earthquake Zinfandel 2013


SKU 1869


This wine packs so much vibrant fruit, you'll think the Kool-Aid Man just burst through the wall and punched you in the face! Jam packed with crushed strawberry and dark summer fruit (plum, blackberry, cherry) with a velvety full mouth feel. Vanilla and baking spices round out the finish with a slight hint of tobacco.

Wine AdvocateMichael David Winery also scores impressively with their moderately priced Zinfandels. The 2013 Zinfandel Earthquake is 100% Zinfandel, a 30,000-case cuvée aged in American oak. It is no wimpy Zinfandel at 15.5% alcohol, but is full-bodied, offering briary, peppery, meaty and herbal black fruits and some red fruits. The wine is pure, deep, fleshy, and ideal for drinking over the next 3-4 years.

Wine EnthusiastThis showy wine has maple syrup aromas, extremely ripe and almost unctuous flavors, lots of spicy oak influence and full body. While it offers a lot of flash, it also has lots of substance underneath. A velvety, grippy texture owes a lot to layered tannins, and a base note of ripe berries carries through the finish.
