The 2010 - 7 Deadly Zins Old Vine Zinfandel, blended with undisclosed amounts of Petite Sirah, has intense aromas of stewed dates, prune, blackberry, smoked meat, vanilla and toasted wood. It is a full bodied, off-dry, fruity to integrated wine, with good acidity, refined tannins and a long and smooth finish. Drink with red meats or sip on its own; drink now and for the next 5+ years. My impression: BEAUTIFUL, 90-91 pts – recommended for its quality. Tasted at Churchill Cellars Portfolio tasting May/13.

Drinkable. Interesting introduction point to zinfandel. Over priced somewhat. Tasted October 2013

Mostly Zinfandel and blended with Petite Sirah and Petite Verdot. Medium-intensity crushed black fruit and sweet red fruit aromas with cedar undertones. Medium-bodied and very fruit-forward with red fruits, red berries and black cherry on the palate. Medium acidity and integrated tannins. Crowd-pleaser and a good introduction to new red wine drinkers. Tasted April/2013.

Opaque ruby with a purple tinge in colour and medium+ intense nose.

Either you’re going to love this or hate this. For me the first glass was great, but then the alcohol and sweetness got to me.

Positives: The dominant note is Hubba Bubba grape chewing gum, followed by Maltesers, raisins and plums. Full body, mild tannins, good acidity and a fairly long length.

Negatives: The heat from the 15% alcohol.

Drink now or over the next 2 years on its own or pair it with BBQ ribs.

Tasted: 15 April 13
