The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Earthquake is another 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from Lodi, but with a much smaller production of 31,000 cases. Aged in French oak, it reveals more charcoal and smoky barbecue notes intermixed with the tell-tale hallmark of the Cabernet Sauvignon grape, blackcurrant fruit, as well as tobacco leaf and licorice characteristics. With surprising complexity, this dense, medium to full-bodied, rich Cabernet Sauvignon should keep for 5-7 years. It tastes like it should cost 3 to 4 times the price.
