93 points ""Damp earth, loamy soil, pepper, black currant, raspberry, and cherry aromas soar from the glass of the dark plum/ruby-colored 2008 Zinfandel Grist Vineyard. A sweet attack (from high alcohol and glycerin) is followed by a fleshy, earthy, spicy wine. " Best 2012-2016

91 points "Medium bright red. Slightly high-toned, complex nose melds cherry, raspberry, incense, flowers and fruitcake, plus an exotic whiff of dried apricot. At once dense and juicy; like a fruit cocktail in the mouth. Not as lively on the end as in the mid-palate, but the lingering finish offers intriguing notes of currant, date, candied fig and quince paste."
