2001 Michael David Winery The Seven Deadly Zins
Lodi, California
 
WB Rating: 84

 
Alcohol by volume: 14.8%
Price at time of purchase: $12.99 (The Wine Club)
 
Type: Zinfandel
Principal varietal(s): 100% Zinfandel

This is a blend of Zinfandels from seven different growers in Lodi, packaged with a cutesy label identifying various human frailties such as lust and gluttony. ("Those are sins?" responded one taster, shortly before being vaporized in a shower of brimstone.) Fairly hefty style, with good spice and cherry fruit in the nose, though a hint of a medicinal edge was also detected by some tasters. Chewy texture with almost over-ripe dark berry and plum flavors. Not bad for the price. - WB Team 2003-03-27

[KenCrab  2006-07-24] Great pepper taste. Little to no finish. Highly recommended and you can ask your guests to list the 7 deadly sins.  User Rating: 90.
