Wine Description

(2013 Vintage) A Lodi Zinfandel at its finest, this wine showcases the style you've come to love and expect from 7 Deadly Zins. It offers fresh ground pepper and an array of spices, thanks to the 12 months in American oak. Dried fruit (cranberries and dates) on the mid palate, with a finish reminiscent to a slice of warm boysenberry pie. This is a great value Zin that satisfies every time.

    This was my first taste of a red zin. (Silly Californian...) And I didn't like the white zins I had before. -- Many say this is close to a cabernet. So I had to try. -- But I'm not interested.

    (2004 Vintage) Extreme in its ripeness and never keen on well-defined fruit, this palate-coating effort offers up glimmers of dried grapes that are overlain with suggestions of smoke and tar. Very full in the mouth and rather viscous in feel, it will defy easy mealtime matching with food but will be liked by fans of full-blown Zins.
