Earthquake 2005 Petite Sirah

Earthquake…Petite Sirah is the February wine of the month. Petite Sirah is not a common varietal that one would purchase, however, I highly recommend trying a bottle. The 2005 Earthquake is a California wine from the Lodi Appellation, produced and bottled by Michael and David Phillips. At first the wine was a bit tight when tasting, but soon opened up beautifully. Deep rich color, with ripe fruit and spice on the nose, and a bold almost peppery finish. Reasonably priced around $20, this is an outstanding value for this wine. For the full line of Earthquake wines including, Zinfandel, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon as well as the other labels in the Michael David family of wines, check out lodivineyards.com.
