90 points "Dark plum/ruby-hued, the 2003 Zinfandel Ueberroth Vineyard (500 cases, 15.4% alcohol) emerges from a limestone vineyard planted in 1874. This wine has a sour cherry, tart style with dark ruby color, decided minerality, relatively noticeable acidity, and a crisp, somewhat austere personality. It is the least hedonistic of the Turley Zinfandels. -Robert Parker"

93 points "'Superripe, slightly high-toned aromas of dried berries and pepper. Densely packed and rich, with great life to its dark berry and mineral flavors owing to perfectly integrated acidity.'"
