Made from old vines in the Lodi region of California, famous for Zin, this towering Californian Zinfandel has big aromas and flavours of purple plums, blueberry and blackberry jam. Very juicy and rich on the palate and finish. Pair with pterodactyl wings or brontosaurus burgers.

Zinfandel food pairings: aged cheddar, grilled lamb loin, grilled duck breast, Italian sausage burgers.

Reviews and Ratings

Melanie Lloyd rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

A complex, full-bodied Zinfandel with aromas of wet cedar, dried eucalyptus leaves, sweet cinnamon, dark berries, floral notes and black tea. In terms of flavours, there is ripe dark berries, tea, and a subtle touch of cedar. The flavours linger on the palate.

Tasted November 2017
Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Ripe dark fruit and savoury notes with a hit of jalapeno. Smooth and well-integrated -not for the timid!
Tasted Nov. 2017
Earthquake (2014) is a powerful, full-bodied, deep red Zinfandel (with a splash of Petite Sirah) from the Lodi wine region in California. ON the nose the wine is blackberry jam, blueberry and white pepper spice. On that palate look for raspberry pie, baking spice and leather. Pair with rib-eye steaks with sage with a smattering of blue cheese. - Community Wine Reviews

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
