Winemaker's Notes:

"Young and untamed, but that's the appeal. Offers lively aromas of wild berry, smoky oak and spice aromas that open to layered, zesty plum, pomegranate and licorice notes. The tannins are ripe but rustic. Best from 2010 through 2015." 91 Points
Wine Spectator
2009

"Cherry, pepper and smoke, along with an intriguing flinty quality, on the slightly reduced nose. Moderately sweet and fat, with the smoke and flint nuances carrying through on the palate. Currently a rather atypical moore, as it doesn't yet show the explosive fruit this bottling often displays." 89-92 Points
International Wine Cellar
May/June 2008

"One of my favorite Zinfandels is the Zinfandel Moore Earthquake Vineyard, but the 2006 was just not singing. It is an elegant style, with high acidity, and restrained and somewhat understated when comparing it with previous examples from this vineyard. We'll see how it behaves." 88-90 Points
