Wine Advocate 88 points - 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. (Aug 2013)

Supple pepper and licorice-clove notes, brambly blackberries and cherries. The finish is clean with hints of rich vanilla, cocoa, and mild tannins. Try with chili or peppered sirloin.
