Hump Day: Wino Wednesday

Happy Hump Day everyone!  To motivate all my employed readers to make it through the week, I've decided to review some of my favorite drinks each Wednesday.  This week I'll be telling you about one of my favorite wines, 7 Deadly Zins Zinfandel. This mid-priced wine from Lodi, California has everything I like in a red.  It's bold, spicy and fruit forward.  I recommend letting it breathe for about 30 minutes before enjoying.  According to the winemaker's notes, the Zinfandel was devised by the two Phillips brothers in their search for a blended Zin so captivating that no one could refuse. With consistency in mind, the brothers decided to blend the fruit of Lodi's finest growers to fill the bottles of Michael David's new-fangled wine. In the end, Seven vineyards were chosen for their superiority.  The two Phillips brothers quickly related the Seven Sins from their Catholic school upbringing to the seven Old Vine Zinfandels blended in their wine. Notes of sweet plums and pepper dominate the nose, while flavors of blueberry, raspberry, cinnamon, and black pepper pack the palate from start to finish. The silky-smooth tannins hold the wine together and deliver a soft, fruit driven experience. So uncork, unwind, and enjoy!
