7 Deadly Zins Zinfandel 2008, Lodi, CA - $12

I've tasted a different vintage of this Lodi Zin before - see the review for 7 Deadly Zins 2007 here.

I'm not a huge fan of this vintage. Hubby purchased it at Costco for $12 - I wish he hadn't.

Aroma - HOT!, mild hints of dark fruit and chocolate, way too much oak
Taste - very acidic (stings my nose from the inside), dark chocolate, and is that a finish of spice or heat?

This wine contains 15% alcohol - no wonder it smells so hot! Never again!
