(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.
Drop clear ruby coloring. Cherry and spicy notes on the aroma. Just ahint of smoke. Sweet then spicy with lively acidity on the side of the tongue. Long finish of acids notes. Medium body.

Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wines(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.
