Earthquake Zinfandel Cabernet Sauvignon is a great improvement over the Zin. There’s no mistaking its youth, but the balance of fruit and wood is much improved here, giving this a distinct (yet inexpensive and easygoing) Cabernet character. Plummy and with more of those cocoa notes, but with a richer and more velvety body.
This big and chewy Cabernet opens with an attractive blend of mild blackberry, coffee, and cinnamon. The wine is full bodied, nicely balanced, smooth, and elegant. The flavor profile is a mild black currant with notes of coffee, and milk chocolate.
