Did anyone feel the earthquake just north of us last Wednesday? I think it is only fitting that this wine take the wine of the week because Earthquake Zinfandel is extraordinary. It’s robust, fruity and a little spicy with a loamy finish. We ordered a bottle with a good friend one evening and sip after sip, this wine proved to be delicious throughout the entire meal. The winery that produces it also makes 7 Deadly Zins. The story behind the name of the wine came from the fact that the vines were planted in the Lodi region the same year as San Francisco’s great earthquake of 1906. For about $24 you can find this at Binny’s or many other local wine retailers. Drink a glass today to appease the earthquake gods, you won’t regret it.
Cheers my dears!
