Pour: 7 Deadly Zins

This 2007 old-vine zinfandel exhibits a virtuous lusciousness seldom found in a $15 zin

7 Deadly Zins
 

I’m wary of cleverly named wines like 7 Deadly Zins, but this 2007 old-vine zinfandel, blended by Michael and David Phillips from seven vineyards in the Lodi Appellation east of San Francisco, is a blessing. Aged in American oak and tasting of black pepper, plums, and berries, it exhibits a virtuous lusciousness seldom found in a $15 zin. This winter, I’ll put another log on the fire, uncork a bottle, and toast sloth and gluttony. I always did like them best.
