Michael David Earthquake/Lodi 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon

Earthquake it is!
With a rocking 15% alcohol,
a full body,
and rolling flavors like black currant, serious blueberries,
 to hot spices that just might crack you-up thinking you've just experienced an earthquake in your mouth!

Michael David Earthquake/Lodi 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon, $19.54-$28.99, 88 points, poured core black with bright reds showing toward the broad clear wine ring.
Smells of cedar, black fruit and blueberry were quite good.
Adding to the introductory flavors of the preface were strong flavors of plum, chocolate, and licorice feeding into the fair hot finish.
Paired perfectly with our Italian-styled peperoni pizza.

  1. An OK Zin for me, but The Federalist is my 'go to' Zin for now (great value for money too).

    1. VG: Is your mind playing tricks on you? This is a Cab. If so, how much fun is that!
      I haven't seen the Federalist from Dry Creek, but I wasn't crazy about the Lodi (not reviewed).
      Either way way, thanks for commenting!

  2. VG: Speaking of playing tricks, my head was turned 360 with the earthquake in Italy; I hadn't heard about it as of yet when I read on your blog about the Napa Party and posted an apropos wine recommendation, and since I had this Cab on file and ready to post for some time, the picture had been on my profile selection of the blogger profile pictures weeks before the Italian quake, I went ahead and posted it; then came the realization of "bad-taste".
    Forgive me for that!

  3. Very tragic, my thoughts are with the Italian families that have lost loved ones. But I don't think your post was in bad taste, just a sad coincidence :(
