    I prefer sweet... Jam Jar is my favorite wine ever. I'll be honest, I've been drinking wine for 8 years or so and still am very clueless about it. I tend to just pick a new bottle every time.

    If you like whites try an oyster bay Sauvignon blanc. Here it's around $18 a bottle.

    Try an amarone then. If you can find a 2006 or 2009 grab it. Open it and let it air for half an hour. Your welcome..

    Get any Shiraz, it's not as dry as most other red wines.

    7 Deadly Zins Review
    [​IMG]The wine has a burgundy to purple color that makes it similar to ruby. In the glass, the 2010 7 Deadly Zins has many quick moving legs. Some light does shine through this wine, but in general, it is fairly dark.

    On the nose there is a noticeable aroma of alcohol. We found the wine to be very aromatic. The aroma had subtleties that included sweet forest floor and raspberry, which agreed with the wine’s tasting notes.

    For the wine’s taste we had differing opinions. I immediately noticed enjoyable fruits. One of the ladies said the initial taste was metallic, but then followed with earthy berries. Two of us found the wine to be smooth. While another noted it to be somewhat dry at the tip of the tongue.

    The 7 Deadly Zins tannins were noted as round and all over the mouth. Mouthfeel was described as silky or creamy.

    When it came to the finish, we all agreed this wine has a long finish that goes on and on. Also, the inital alcohol aroma was very muted at the end.

    Overall, we all gave this wine a collective thumbs up. One of the tasters was not normally a red wine drinker, however she said “For a non-red drinker I like it!” Other highlights included the smoothness and the full bodied flavor. Recommend!

    Price for 7 Deadly Zins about $18.99.
