Natalie's Score: 93/100

Vintages Wine Panel: It took fruit sourced from seven of Lodi’s premium vineyards, specifically chosen for their superior quality, to create this sinfully rich Zinfandel. Loaded with berry fruit, pepper, spice and earth, this wine is a model of consistency. Mitigate the severity of your transgression (or implicate others as you will) and share this considerable, and decadent, treasure with friends at your next barbecue. Enjoy over the next 3-5 years. My vote: I adore this wine: it’s vibrant, juicy, generous and fleshy rich with blueberries, purple plums, black raspberries. It reminds me of Tina Fey: lively and fun, always ready for a joke as you sit around the barbecue. It’s simply delicious.

Zinfandel food pairings: sauce-covered barbecued meats, cheeses.

Erin De Santiago rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

The flagship Zinfandel from the Michael David Winery is everything you come to expect from a Lodi Zinfandel. It is a blend of Zinfandel, Petite Syrah, and some Petit Verdot as well. The 7 Deadly Zins is a full-bodied wine with "in your face" berry, pepper, and earthy undertone. The finish is complex with hints of smoke and dark chocolate.
Bella Mcdowell rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Spicy nose with a palate of blackberry, black pepper,and earthy tannins. Ends with a spicy finish. A solid, full-bodied Zin that I have been able to find for around $12-15.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
