External Reviews for Michael-David Vineyards Zinfandel 7 Deadly Zins
Zesty and ripe, featuring bold raisin and licorice aromas, with modest cherry, cedar and herb notes. Drink now through 2016.
The 2010 and 2011 7 Deadly Zins are both 100% Zinfandels that spent 11 months in American oak with a production of a staggering 300,000 cases. While I thought the 2010 would be the best wine (based on what I knew about the vintages), in fact, the spicy 2011 7 Deadly Zins is better. Fuller and richer with more texture and deeper fruit, it reveals hints of tapenade, new saddle leather, black cherries and black currants. It offers a lot of flavor for its price.
A sinful blend indeed! Our flagship Zinfandel was devised by the two Phillips brothers in their search for a blended Zin so captivating that no one could refuse. With consistency in mind, the brothers decided to blend the fruit of Lodi's finest growers to fill the bottles of Michael David's new-fangled wine. 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
Smoky, spicy, jammy dark fruits with notes of anise, clove and nutmeg. Everybody’s favorite Zin.
This all-out Zin makes no bones about its sweetness, heavy oak spiciness and full body. Maple syrup, brown sugar and cherry jam are the dominant notes that crowd the aromas and flavors and linger on the finish. Very rich and full-bodied, it has prominent caramelized oak notes that keep the tannins from biting.
