Tasting Notes:
rated: December 1, 2009 , Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
94 points "The brilliant dark ruby/plum-colored 2008 Zinfandel Rattlesnake Ridge exhibits lots of blueberry, blackberry, and forest floor notes, but the blue fruit spectrum of aromas and flavors dominate. Full-bodied with sweet tannin and a layered, textured mouthfeel, it should drink well for a decade. Score: 92-94." Best 2012-2018

91 points "Saturated ruby. Black fruits, camphor, melted chocolate and espresso on the nose. Dense but youthfully imploded, with a strong spine of acids and tannins keeping the dark fruit and flinty mineral flavors under wraps today. Sweet and chewy but also serious and backward. Finishes ripely tannic and long. A "mere" 14.8% alcohol, lower than the many zinfandels that preceded it."
