Seven Deadly Zins Old Vine Zinfandel 2010
Note: I publish batches of reviews that I call Good Values Wine Picks. These are from the regular section of the liquor store rather than the Vintages section, and tend to be lower priced and the most widely available of all wines. The last four reviews I did were: March 7, January 4, December 16 and November 20.

|Darlene Myers rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:|
The old vine Zinfandel's are my go-to wines. And I loved the Seven Deadly Zins. Getting the name from selecting Zinfandel grapes from 7 different vineyards, this is a sinfully good Zin. Vibrant ruby color in the glass and big juicy fruits on the palate. Nice balance, terrific wine.
|Dan Trcka rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
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.
