More Wine Reviews and Ratings

Darlene Myers CAPS Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Love the name - Love the wine. Dark and mysterious in the glass, seductive and sinful in the mouth. Ripe berry fruits and jammy raspberry flavors with some spice and beautiful finish.
Drink Wine and Giggle Gals rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

The Drink Wine and Giggle Gals are not above selecting a wine solely on the basis of name. Zinfandel lends itself well to word play and so we have Michael David's tantalizing Seven Deadly Zins. It seems zinfandel's only "sin" is trying to pass itself off as "America's Wine" when it has been proven through DNA fingerprinting to be identical to Italy's primitivo. Seven Deadly Zins is sinfully good, silky smooth and is best paired with Peggy Lee's immortal Fever and a burlesque glove tease.
Carla rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Loved the name of this wine as it fit perfectly with the name of my blog "Cooking With Sin." It has a charming poem on the back label. I enjoyed a bottle with my BFF on the deck of my cabin in my small vintage glasses. We savoured every sip.

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.
