93 points "(Barrel Tasting: 91-93) The 2012 Zinfandel Hayne Vineyard (planted in 1953) is a rich, full-bodied beauty that seems more developed and evolved than previous examples of this cuvee." Best 2015-2020

92 points "(15.5% alcohol): Good deep red. Brooding aromas of blackberry, tart cherry stomp, black licorice, caraway seed, violet and spicecake. Silky, broad and dry, with excellent intensity to its red cherry and spice flavors. Not a monster of color or thickness--and a bit inexpressive today--but subtle and nuanced. Spreads out nicely on the back end, showing a firm tannic spine and plenty of depth and medicinal dark cherry reserve for aging. But this going through a sullen stage following the early March bottling. - May/June 2014" Best 2016-2020
