You can always count on the Zinfandel people to come up with a punny name for their wines — and none is more over the top than Michael-David’s 7 Deadly Zins, a bargain Lodi wine that is ubiquitous in liquor stores.
What’s it like? Seriously, intensely smoky — deadly, even — with huge raisin and dark cherry notes. It’s very much a food Zin — which is somewhat rare — and a big meal at that.
