2010 has much sediment. nose: reminds petite syrah in general, prunes, jemmy berry mix with some fresh hints of lingonberry, green apple wrapped in a sticky plummy dark fruit and smooth vanilla. taste: too much alcohol in flavour this year, bright and spicy sweet cherry and raspberries at the beginning, then smooth dark berry mix with something I'll call "blue agave" and again spicy ending with long oak aftertaste that never ends. It's a good wine but previous years were better.

In the end, Seven vineyards were chosen for their superiority. Now, how do you label a wine so unique in style Looking to their past, the two Phillips brothers quickly related the Seven Sins from their Catholic school upbringing to the seven Old Vine Zinfandels blended in their wine.Winery
