October 2013 | 7 Deadly Zins 2010


This month’s staff pick is 7 Deadly Zins 2010 from Michael David Winery, selected by 11-year Bremer’s employee Garry Brombacker.

“A Lodi Zinfandel at its finest, this wine showcases the style you’ve come to love and expect from 7 Deadly Zins. It offers fresh ground pepper and an array of spices, thanks to the 12 months in American oak. Dried fruit (cranberries and dates) on the mid palate, with a finish reminiscent to a slice of warm boysenberry pie. This is a great value Zin that satisfies every time.”
