93 "Greenwood Ridge does a terrific job with Scherrer's Alexander Valley Zin grapes, capturing the intensity of these century vines while maintaining balance. The flavors are powerful, of wild summer red, blue and black berries, crushed pepper, Asian spices, creme de cassis, licorice and cola. Enjoy this potent wine now through 2014." --Wine Enthusiast Magazine 

 

"Comes with its fair share of ripeness without drifting into excess and delivers plenty of vital blackberry fruit in its aromas. It is a wine with a style more reminiscent of what Zinfandel was in the past than what it has become today." --Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine

 

"Exceptional. Bright blackberry and blueberry fruit with a hint of black pepper; a bit leaner than some, but with engaging fruit in the finish." --Dan Berger's Vintage Experiences
