This Zin Rocks!
Was served at a recent dinner party with shell fish and pasta in an Italian seafood sauce. I have not had zin in several years but this wine was a perfect fit for this meal......smooth and packed with plenty of flavor. It's on my list for my next trip to Total Wine.
I have been drinking this for a couple years and you can't beat it for the price. This is by far my favorite Zin. I need to start buying it by the case.
For the Money...Hands Down the BEST!
I buy this wine weekly! Bold in your face Yum taste! My wife and I fight over the last glass. Althought the big Brother Earthquake is a little better...but it's anther $10...
If you like this then you'll also love 6th Sense Syrah..
Smooth and mellow nose with a nice long finish. Best Value for the dollar in a Zinfandel
wonderful for any occasion
I love lodi i find it to be a great region. This wine was fantastic great big fruit with sight pepper and low tannins easily the biggest bang for the buck
conflicting reviews; worth trying 1
dy really likes almost as much as cline zin
had 7-5-08 with hamburger
1.5 L on sale at Lunardi's for $15.99 - great value.
Anyone near a Lundardi's? If so, stop by and pick up a case - easily the best value for your dollar in a Zin.
I love it... I enjoy it !!!
This remains my favorite of all the Zins I've tried... going to visit the vinyard soon!
Best at this price point...
7 Deadly Zins Zinfandel Old Vines Lodi has been our house red for 4 years. We lived in San Francisco and visited 162 wineries in Napa and Sonoma over a 3 year period and tasted many wines. If there is a better Zin at this price...please reply in your review...
Good taste great body nice aromma
MY FIRST TRUE LOVE
7 Deadly Zins was my first red zin....after much experimenting with other red zins, it remains my favorite.
7 Deadly Zines
This Zin is one of the best by far. It is bold, peppery and smooth. I want to try the other wines from the MichaelDavid Vineyard. Keep this one in stock.
7 Deadly Zins
Absolutely Smooth. Justifiably delicoius. Let the tastebuds wonder!
I first tried "7 Deadly Zins" in the summer of '05 and it immediately became my favorite Zinfandel.
best zin for the buck
I hve been drinking 7 deadly for years and it is always consistent
Great Wine for a fairly low price - Awesome Value
Will definitely buy again. Best Value. You have to go pretty far up the price scale to beat this one.
Smooth, flavorful, with a nice finish.
Very good - smokey and bold
Lives up to the hipe!
7 Deadly Zins Zinfandel Old Vines Lodi
Very good zin.
This is a great, easy-going Zin and, in my opinion, the ABSOLUTE BEST ZIN for its price point. All I want to add to the other reviews is: If you think THIS WINE is GREAT, TRY ITS OLDER BROTHER FROM THE SAME FOLKS AT MICHAEL-DAVID WINERY...EARTHQUAKE ZIN. (It's the equivalent of their RESERVE ZIN.)
See my review on Earthquake Zin. I promise, it will ROCK YOUR WORLD!
Earthquake, its big brother, is the BEST ZIN ever!
A Zin meritage???
For the price, this is an excellent Zin. A blend of juices that creates a medium body with a bouquet that is front-loaded with cherry, clove-spice and oak. An even, velvety finish with very little tanic embarassment. Compare: Tobias and Titus.
This wine was as good as more top-shelf wines i ever had, and the price was very nice. After properly breathing, it started fruity, with a cherry flavor, with a full body and finished smokey with a hint of spice.
One of my wife's favorites, great for a relaxing evening of simple conversation
Excellent wine, especially for the price.
tricy's taste of wine
want to be able to taste the different wines.
Not quite my thing
2005-Black cherry and leather on the nose. Tastes
a little green and tannic though. Will probably
improve with age, but not my favorite at this
Great zin, but a little too heavy for my taste
great taste down to the last drop. oak with a spice. excellent value
A decent QPR Zin
dark, smooth, and smokey really cover this. It opens smooth on the pallet with a bit of jammy fruit follwed by ceadery spices wraped in a thick layer of smokey oak nuances. A good zin for the money.
Truly, I liked this zin - bar the name. It was good. My toes did not curl, but I liked this taste. So would I purchase it, again and again, Oh yes, oh yes!
Not for me
I read others comments and wanted to like it but... I didn't. Nothing redeeming in this zin. I tried it the next day too and liked it less.
Another victim of overproduction
7 Deadly used to represent a strongly backed zin with good fruit concentration for the price. Now there is an overwhelming nose of bacon and the wine has become flabby. Highly recommend exploring new zins for this price point.
This wine is burnt
I have been a big fan of the 7 Deadly Zins but I have seen it grow to the point of over production. The first few vintages came from 7 different old vine Lodi vinyards. Each vineyard was given a name after the original 7 deadly sins. It was masterfully blended. The production was hands on. Made at the winery. The marketing was a success.
The wine is now massed produced and no longer even being made at Micheal David Winery in Lodi. Grapes are trucked in to a custom crush facility in Santa Rosa. Apparently there is over 250,000 cases produced from 30 different vineyards. Some vineyards as far north as Lake County are in the blend. Needless to say I tasted the 2006 vintage and it is aweful. It tastes like a burnt tire. I think they lost a key winemaker. I have been told he may be lurking in the shadows of the Oak tree's of Lodi's historic Jesse's Grove winery. Try the "Earthquake" or the "Lust" if you want to enjoy the best from this winery.
