93 points "Once again, the 2013 Zinfandel Rattlesnake Ridge shows more mid-weight expression of Howell Mountain. Iron, blood, white pepper and savory herbs open up in the glass. Today, the Rattlesnake comes across wild, powerful and unrestrained than the Dragon, yet it also retains a considerable amount of polish, which makes it remarkably complete, not to mention delicious. (93-95)."

91 points "Dense and powerful, with aromas of black cherry and Asian spice that lead to concentrated flavors of black currant, mineral and fresh sage. Tannins tighten the finish. " Best 2014-2018

92 points "The same can be said for the 2009 Zinfandel Rattlesnake Ridge, a high elevation, cooler climate vineyard. Its dark ruby/purple hue is followed by notes of blueberries, blackberries and damp, mossy, forest floor scents. The wine possesses fabulous fruit, admirable ripeness and a rich, full-bodied mouthfeel and plenty of power as well as fruit. (92-94)."
