Wine Spectator 88 points - Michael David Winery also scores impressively with their moderately priced Zinfandels. The 2013 Zinfandel Earthquake is 100% Zinfandel, a 30,000-case cuvee 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.
"Ripe and zesty, with baked berry pie aromas and appealing flavors of huckleberry, fresh sage and licorice. Drink now through 2016." - Wine Spectator
