90 points "Another winner from Howell Mountain is the 2005 Zinfandel Dragon Vineyard. It shows beautiful crushed rock, acacia flower, raspberry, blueberry, and blackberry characteristics, full body, supple tannin, and decent acidity. It won’t make old bones, but for drinking during its first 4-5 years of life, it is impressively constituted as well as well-balanced. " Best 2006-2011

88 points "Tight, with raspberry, bay leaf and licorice aromas and tart, slightly gritty cherry, blueberry, cracked pepper and smoke flavors that grip with slightly metallic tannins. Best from 2008 through 2012. " Best 2008-2012
