2009 Michael & David Vineyards "7 Deadly Zins" Lodi Zinfandel (Previously $14)
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Even better is the 250,000-case cuvee of 100% Zinfandel, the 7 Deadly Zins 2009. This hugely popular wine spends 12 months in both French and American oak. Sexy and endearing, it offers a deep ruby/purple color, full-bodied, corpulent flavors and abundant berry fruit, pepper and spice notes. Drink this seductive, full throttle, classic Zinfandel over the next several years. Shrewd consumers should be seeking out the offerings from this value-priced winery.
This is Michael David’s flagship Zin, a mighty production that’s popular and well-priced at $16. Full of big, ripe flavors of bacon, black fruit and toasty oak, it’s plummy, juicy, full-octane-flavored, peppery, all you want in a Zin of this style.
