85 points "Ultraripe but it stays in balance, with maraschino cherry, wild berry and huckleberry flavors that are appealing. Turns simpler on the finish, with a dash of tea. Drink now. (JL)" Best 2006-

91 points "From Lodi, the deep plum/ruby-hued 2003 Zinfandel Dogtown Vineyard offers a huge nose of earth, roasted herbs, cherries, briery mountain fruit, and a peppery, alcoholic finish. This 700 case cuvee (16.5% alcohol) should drink well for 4-5 years" Best -2008

91 points "Dark red. Exotic dried berries, pepper and spice cake on the nose. Fat, sweet and lush but with very good vinosity thanks to harmonious acidity. A huge wine with a strong chocolatey character and some obvious alcoholic warmth. This is likely to give greatest pleasure over the short term."
