The Michael David Phillips Seven Deadly Zins packs a wallop; rich, powerful and lasting from start to finish.

Review
7 Deadly Zins is deep red in color. A pleasing and complex array of aromas greet your nose with ripe dark fruit, leather, earth and spice-laced wood. Big, intense flavors of black cherries and dark plums fill the palate along with densely textured but soft tannins. This full-bodied red ends in a blaze of seductive mocha flavor infused with spice.

Rating
 Wine Advocate 88 points (Aug 2013)
The 2010 and 2011 7 Deadly Zins are both 100% Zinfandels that spent 11 months in American oak with a production of a staggering 300,000 cases While I thought the 2010 would be the best wine (based on what I knew about the vintages), in fact, the spicy 2011 7 Deadly Zins is better. Fuller and richer with more texture and deeper fruit, it reveals hints of tapenade, new saddle leather, black cherries and black currants. It offers a lot of flavor for its price.

Food pairing
Pulled pork, authentic Southern barbecue, pizza with olives, gourmet hamburgers.
