2010 Michael-David 7 Deadly Zins, Old Vine Zinfandel, Lodi
LIST PRICE 14.99; OUR PRICE 9.99
(Compare with the Total Wine advertised special price of $10.99)
This flagship Zinfandel was devised by the two Phillips brothers in their search for a blended Zinfandel from the fruit of Lodi’s finest growers. Michael-David selected seven vineyards for their superiority of quality. One wonders how the two Phillips brothers related the Seven Sins from their Catholic school upbringing to the seven Old Vine Zinfandels blended in their wine. Perhaps it is best we remain in a state of ignorance.
Of greater importance is the consistent quality from year to year of the “7 Deadly” line. There are now at least 89 wineries in and about Lodi producing Zinfandel which should make this hot-bed of Zin the capital for wines made from this grape. Michael-David produces many different bottlings which include Earthquake, Lust, Sloth, Gluttony and Rage. The 7 Deadly is a well balanced easy to drink wine, yet rich and flavorful, and not as bombastic as some of these others.
This hugely popular wine spends 12 months in both French and American oak. It is vibrant ruby in color with lots of rich earth and dark berry aromas on the nose. Bright raspberry, cranberry fruit, with some warm spice make this seductive, full throttle, classic Zinfandel drinkable over the next several years. It is full-bodied, with corpulent flavors of abundant berry fruit, pepper and spice notes that continue straight through the lingering finish.
