Michael David Wine - Earthquake Cabernet Sauvignon 2020
This wine is huge, expansive and profound. There are wood-smoke and tobacco fragrances alongside blackberry and dark cherry flavors. The body is full and thick however there are delicate tannins in the surface.
Tasting Notes - Earthquake’s profound violet shading offers a route to an upheaval of dark fruit, red currant, anise and vanilla on the nose. Rich and profound in the mouth, loaded down with dark blackberry, mocha, flavorful zest and cinnamon that help through a smooth extensive finish.
The Producer - "Michael" and "David" are Michael and David Phillips, siblings whose family has cultivated fruits and vegetables in the Lodi locale since the 1850s and developed wine grapes for almost a century. Michael and David comprise the fifth era of grape cultivators in the Phillips family, with the sixth era currently joining the privately-owned company.
"We and Lodi go way back. We’ve been farming this soil since the 1850’s and cultivating wine grapes since the early 20th century. Our founders, brothers Michael and David Phillips, are 5th generation grape growers who have raised their families in the vineyard, and now the 6th generation has joined the team, Mike’s son Kevin and daughter Melissa. We, more than most, understand the importance of leaving it better than you found it for future generations. Our family legacy and love of Lodi drive our focus on sustainability."- The Producers
