Earthquake Cabernet Sauvignon
- Boldly flavored and full-bodied.
- Massive richness of tannins, gobs of ripe boysenberry and black cherry character, and a very deep red color.
- It tastes like it should cost 3 to 4 times the price.
Over the top and shattering to the veins, these wines possess major concentration and daring flavor. The original is the Earthquake Zin which came from an old Lodi vineyard planted around the same time of San Francisco’s 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. These dark and voluminous wines will definitely leave your senses quivering.
"The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Earthquake is another 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from Lodi, but with a much smaller production of 31,000 cases. Aged in French oak, it reveals more charcoal and smoky barbecue notes intermixed with the tell-tale hallmark of the Cabernet Sauvignon grape, blackcurrant fruit, as well as tobacco leaf and licorice characteristics. With surprising complexity, this dense, medium to full-bodied, rich Cabernet Sauvignon should keep for 5-7 years. It tastes like it should cost 3 to 4 times the price."
