88 points "One of my favorite Zinfandels is the Zinfandel Moore Earthquake Vineyard, but the 2006 was just not singing. It is an elegant style, with high acidity, and restrained and somewhat understated when comparing it with previous examples from this vineyard. We’ll see how it behaves. (88-90)."

92 points "(89-92) points from Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright medium red. Cherry, pepper and smoke, along with an intriguing flinty quality, on the slightly reduced nose. Moderately sweet and fat, with the smoke and flint nuances carrying through on the palate. Currently a rather atypical Moore, as it doesn't yet show the explosive fruit this bottling often displays. This is 15% alcohol "at the most," notes winemaker Jordan, adding that the fruit was harvested very late." (May/June '08)"

91 points "Young and untamed, but that's the appeal. Offers lively aromas of wild berry, smoky oak and spice aromas that open to layered, zesty plum, pomegranate and licorice notes. The tannins are ripe but rustic. Best from 2010 through 2015. –TF" Best 2010-2015
