Winemaker's Notes:

Earthquake Petite Sirah is a big, juicy, in your face, and ultimately a fine, bold wine full of intense black olive tapenade, chocolate, and tobacco, with a tannic, peppery finish, a nod to its 19 months spent in French oak.
My Notes:

About Michael David Winery:

Michael and David Phillips represent the fifth generation of growers in Lodi, and things are changing. With 500 acres of premium wine grapes, there is plenty of room for experimentation and innovation.

The vineyards are irrigated by the Mokelumne River, which carries crystal-clear water from the Sierra Nevada Mountains, depositing minerals into the rich soils upon which the grapes thrive. Though not certified organic, Michael~David Winery strives to use all natural methods including integrated pest management, beneficial insects for pest control, trellising, leaf pulling and natural mined sulfur for mildew control. We are six generations of winegrowers specializing in hand-crafted Rhone varietals as well as Lodi's famous Old Vine Zinfandels.
