Food Pairings for Michael and David Phillips Zinfandel Seven Deadly Zins
Berry, spice, jammy. Classic Cali zin.
One of my favorite zins. Peppery mouth, yet not too much, with plenty of fruit on the nose. Can't beat the price/quality ratio :)
Ryan and I first tried this on our 7th Anniversary at a fav restaurant on Maui called Cafe O' Lea. We loved it and then realized that Maui's Costco sold it by the bottle at 1/4 of what we paid at the restaurant. (Typical) Of course, I also love the name. It seems daring. Great with steak.
Excellent wine. Very smooth. Works well with steak and with fondue.
