Non-discountable item
Peppery and spicy with plenty of berry fruit (cherries & raspberries) intertwined with dusty, loamy soil, incense and a Provencial garrigue-like note jump from the glass of this impressive wine.
Wine Enthusiast -- 93 Points

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 not feel heavy in texture nor heavily oaked.

Over the top and shattering to the veins! The original is the Earthquake Zin that comes 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. With over 15% alcohol and bold tannins, these dark and voluminous wines will definitely leave your senses quivering.
