90 "Smooth and plush, with tangy-edged cherry, berry, spice and toast flavors. Fleshy and bold, the wine remains quite lovely and fun to drink. Long at the end." --Wine Enthusiast Magazine

 

 

 "Rich and ripe, with spicy, jammy cherry flavors. Notes of currant, cranberry and pepper." --Santa Rosa Press Democrat

 

 

"Its ripe, handsomely berryish and creamy oak aromas are the stuff of superb Zinfandel, and those admirable traits continue at the front of the palate. It falls off a bit in the latter half, and its fruit becomes increasingly chocolatey with an edge of coarseness. Cellar aging will soften its finish." --Connoisseurs' Guide
