88 "Supple and generous, a harmonious wine that balances its plum and berry flavors on a nice edge of acidity, shading it all with a pretty layer of vanilla oak. Drink now through 2002." --Wine Spectator


"A luscious, smoothly textured Zinfandel, with rich fruitiness and toasty, oaky overtones. In aroma/flavor, it is reminiscent of plum, cherry, blackberry, vanilla, and caramel. Outstanding." --Restaurant Wine Magazine
