The nose is dominated by spice. The initial taste indicates a very jammy fruit that is quickly taken over by too much oak. It finishes with a dustiness that suggests a lack of balance. Earthquake is more complex and balanced.Add winemaker's notes

this was my first zinfandel, and i've found it continues to be one of my favorites. i'm really bad at describing wine, but i think it's got strong flavor, with just the right amount of pepper. fantastic with my husband's grilled steaks. and at Costco, it's only about $11
After a glass of the 2007 my mouth feels like an ashtray. The wine is probably not bad from the start but it tastes like it's been filtered through smoked tobacco. Unbalanced combination of oak and caramel. I can't detect any taste of real grapes. No complexity. Useable to get dizzy at a barbecue party, but bad value. I can't understand the praise it's been getting. Without the tons of oak shavings they must have used it might have been ok.
Lovely full bodied, complex Zin.
Big. Bold. Full-bodied. "Fruit-forward" as they say. Highly complex, highly drinkable. I like it better than Earthquake, which I found a bit smokier and not as "rich" tasting.
A wonderful Zin....I've just recently rediscovered Zinfandel when I had a Michael and David Earthquake Zin at a restaurant. It was unbelievable, but a tad expensive for everyday drinking. 7 Deadly Zins is almost as good...not quite.....and well priced. I will definitely buy it...again and again.
dark color, great legs, tastes earthy with long finish
