seven deadly zins


Halloween is just around the corner and so are the tricks, treats, ghosts and ghouls.  Michael David Winery,  in California’s Lodi Wine Country, has come up with four treats for Halloween night.

The 2009 7 Deadly Zins ($16) is Michael David’s flagship wine.  It is a blend of fruit from seven different Zin vineyards, and the wine has aromas of sweet plums and pepper, 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.

The 2009 6th Sense Syrah ($16) is a blend of Syrah and small amounts of Petite Sirah for complexity.  This wine has full, rich flavors of dark berries and plum with a long finish.  It’s a great wine for BBQ and stewed meats.

The 2009 Incognito Red ($16), is an interesting red Rhône blend of 40% Syrah, 25% Cinsault, 11% Carignan, 11% Mourvedre, 9% Petite Sirah, 2% Grenache and 2% Tannat. It spent 16 months in French oak and is a crowd pleasing red blend.

The 2010 Incognito White ($18), is a complex white blend of 63% Viognier, 21% Chardonnay, 7% Muscat, 5% Sauvignon Blanc, and 4% Roussanne.
