90 points "The outstanding 2005 Zinfandel Old Vines, basically a blend of old vine parcels that are not big enough to be sold individually, reveals a dark plum/ruby color, oodles of sweet cherry, plum, licorice, pepper, and spicy characteristics, medium to full body, and a fleshy, generous, well-endowed personality. Enjoy it over the next 4-5 years." Best 2006-2011

88 points "A bit on the wild side, showing tart plum, toasty oak and roasted anise aromas, with bold flavors of cherry and cracked pepper that balance tart acidity and burly tannins. Drink now through 2012. Tasted twice, with consistent notes" Best 2007-2012
