Keeping with the trend of Michael David wines (and the Earthquake name) this is a very bold, fruit forward Cabernet that is designed to grab you attention. Cranberries on the nose and palate, smooth and plenty of punch. This is not a smooth, subtle, deeply complex wine. But is to Cab Sav what America has done to IPA. Thoroughly enjoyed it.

👌👌 Fruity, hints of raisins/prunes. A bit dry/tannic on the finish. Nice flavors.

This reminded me of Louis Martini Sonoma Cab. A little hint of sweetness that I don't care for. Really dark. Basically a dark purple. This can't be my night-cap on Christmas. Gotta find something better.

Had an after taste that reminded me of the purple Nyquil. Very dark as well. Not my favorite cabernet

Oak is heavy for my liking. Full body with dark fruits.

Cranberry sauce and red currant. Smooth tannins. Rain coat, tobacco, earthy, heavy mouthfeel.
