Winemaker Notes

The 2016 7 Deadly Red is a sinner’s delight. A deep ruby color with tempting aromas of cranberry, ripe cherry, leather and a whiff of BBQ smoke. The seduction continues with flavors of blackberry, smashed plum and notes of black pepper which lead to a lingering, jammy finish with a kiss of spice.

Tasting Panel

A mélange of spice and briar fills the juicy, round body of this blend of Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Merlot, which exudes aromas of ripe plum, blackberry, and coffee. Fig and clove season the mid-palate while black pepper marks the finish of mocha and oak.

7 Deadly, California
7 Deadly Winery Video

Released in 2002, 7 Deadly was founded by brothers Michael and David Phillips, who saw an opportunity with the quality Zinfandel grown in the Lodi AVA. They chose seven certified sustainable vineyards to source the inaugural vintage of Zinfandel for their superiority. The founders related the Seven Sins from their Catholic school upbringing to the seven Old Vine Zinfandels blended in their wine, and created 7 Deadly Zins, America’s favorite Zinfandel. The 7 Deadly brand also includes a second wine, 7 Deadly Red, which is a proprietary red blend.?

Positioned between the San Francisco Bay and the Sierra Nevada mountain range, the Lodi appellation, while relatively far inland, is able to maintain a classic Mediterranean climate featuring warm, sunny days and cool evenings. This is because the appellation is uniquely situated at the end of the Sacramento River Delta, which brings chilly, afternoon “delta breezes” to the area during the growing season.

Lodi is a premier source of 100+ year old ancient Zinfandel vineyards—some dating back as far as 1888! With low yields of small berries, these heritage vines produce complex and bold wines, concentrated in rich and voluptuous, dark fruit.

But Lodi doesn’t just produce Zinfandel; in fact, the appellation produces high quality wines from over 100 different grape varieties. Among them are Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Chardonnay and Sauvignon blanc as well as some of California's more rare and unique grapes. Lodi is recognized as an ideal spot for growing Spanish varieties like Albarino and Tempranillo, Portugese varieties—namely Touriga Nacional—as well as many German, Italian and French varieties.

Soil types vary widely among Lodi’s seven sub-appellations (Cosumnes River, Alta Mesa, Deer Creek Hills, Borden Ranch, Jahant, Clements Hills and Mokelumne River). The eastern hills are clay-based and rocky and in the west, along the Mokelumne and Cosumnes Rivers, sandy and mineral-heavy soils support the majority of Lodi’s century-old own-rooted Zinfandel vineyards. Unique to Lodi are pink Rocklin-Jahant loam soils, mainly found in the Jahant sub-appellation.

With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World, experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to enhance balance or create complexity, lending different layers of flavors and aromas. For example, a variety that creates a fruity and full-bodied wine would do well combined with one that is naturally high in acidity and tannins. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
