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.
Notes of sweet plums and pepper dominate the nose, while flavors of blueberry, raspberry, cinnamon, and black pepper pack the palate from start to finish. The silky-smooth tannins hold the wine together and deliver a soft, fruit driven experience.
Our 7 Deadly pairs sinfully well with BBQ'd Salmon, prime rib or grilled veggies. Get crazy with delectable dark chocolate desserts!
"The 2007 7 Deadly Zins is a knock-out bargain. Aged completely in American oak, it is loaded with berry fruit, pepper, spice, and earth characteristics. This rich, full-bodied, opulent, luscious Zinfandel can be drunk now and over the next several years. "
The Wine Advocate
Earthy & Spicy
This is an excellent Zin for the price. The color is a beautiful deep cherry red; I got dark cherry, oak and red licorice on the nose; Earthy, with berries, vanilla, cherry pie and oaky spice on the palate; The Finish was long and warm, full of cherries and cassis. I had this with Thanksgiving Dinner and it was a hit with everyone. A nice solid Zinfandel at a very affordable price.
Everybody loves the 7 Deadly Zins!
thank you to the tasting panel here at wine.com and the loyal consumers who are enjoying this product. your support allows our family business to continue to purchase superior grapes from the hard working farmers in lodi. most people dont know that lodi is the largest wine appellation in the united states yet more than 90% of the grapes are purchased by the big 5 wine companies. your support allows more farmers to continue growing quality based fruit at sustainable prices and gives them more options for selling their product profitably and continuing their farming heritage into the next generations. thank you.
This wine has become my tried and true favorite. My only complaint is that it's hard to find regionally, thankfully I can order it here and be assured to always have at least one bottle in the house. I've never had a single complaint from anyone I've given a glass of this to - even non-wine drinkers.
My sister and I tried this while we were in Lodi and we both think it's one of the best Zins we've ever had. Fruity, full-bodied with smokey overtones. Delicious with Italian food.
Great zin for the price! Michael and David make fantastic wines and if you enjoy this try the Earthquake Zin from them, it is one of my favs... You can drink this anytime with nothing if you prefer, jammy, spicy, not too peppery, and great fruit forward wine.
This is relatively easy to drink with big flavors. A bit on the sweet side but nothing over the hill. Key to good tasting is to let the wine breath. Let it breathe at least 30 minutes after decanting or just use one of the aerators if you can't finish the whole bottle. This is one of the wine that improves alot when decanted.
Have had this several times now and I am consistently pleased with it. All my guests enjoy it. It is a very versatile wine at a good price.
Lots of flavor at a good price. I buy this wine for a daily wine for dinner.
