Written By Treve Ring Libations / Red Wine Mar 27, 2010 Michael-David Winery 7 Deadly Zins Zinfandel 2007 SHARE VIA: Facebook Twitter PinterestLodi, Central Valley, California $26-29 www.lodivineyards.comIf this is sinning, let us be zinners – I mean, sinners, all. There are some grapes that easily skip across the globe, and then there is Zinfandel – so entwined with California that it catches people off guard when they see it elsewhere. Here old vine Zinfandel from seven vineyards is enriched with shakes of Petit Sirah and Petite Verdot, and is aged in toasty American Oak. The result is plush plum and wafts of smoke, deep jammy blackberry, blueberry, spicy cinnamon and cool vanilla. Modern, slick and a little bit dangerous – suitable for a sinner – or a cocoa rubbed rib eye on the BBQ.If this wine gets you in a Cali state of mind, be sure to thank the folks at Michael-David Vineyards at next week’s California Wine Fair 2010. Now in its 30th year, this annual tasting tour is the largest group of California wine to visit Canada, touching down on nine cities and introducing the vintners and their wines to their northern neighbours. The Vancouver version takes place on April 7th at the Vancouver Convention Centre, showcasing 350 wines from 100 wineries, many of which are making their Canadian debut. www.calwine.caRating: (click here to see what our wine ratings mean) CaliforniaRed WineWine ReviewsZinfandel SHARE VIA: Facebook Twitter Pinterest Written By: Treve Ring Treve Ring is a wine writer, editor, judge, consultant and certified sommelier, and has been with EAT Magazine for over a decade.\r\n\r\nIn addition to her work with EAT, she is a Wine Critic and National Judge for ...
