Both Earthquake and 7 Deadly Sins 2014 of Michael David Winery have been scored 91 points by Robert Parker. They are two of the most popular red wines from California. Both are beautifully crafted and made of 100% Zinfandel. Grown from old vines these wines possess major concentration and daring flavor with only a limited production offered each year.
BLOG: 7 Deadly Zin(fandel) - Too Juicy. Guilty!
Aged in American oak and French oak, it is loaded with berry fruit, pepper, spice, and earth characteristics. A rich, full-bodied, opulent, luscious Zinfandel. The silky-smooth tannins hold the wine together and deliver a soft, fruit-driven experience.
The original is the Earthquake Zin that comes from an old Lodi vineyard planted around the time of San Francisco’s great Earthquake in 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. This is a jam-filled, expressive example of Zinfandel. Plum, cinnamon, and mulled berry fruit notes fill the nose as black raspberry and vanilla notes roll throughout the palate which lead to some pie crust and mocha on the finish.
