88 points "The 2006 Zinfandel Old Vines, which is a blend of old-vine parcels that are too small to be sold as single-vineyards, has a deeper ruby color, with hints of roasted herbs, pepper, nori (seaweed wrapper) intermixed with black cherry, raspberry, plum, and some spice. It is a fleshy wine with loads of fruit, medium to full body, and a supple texture. (88-90)" Best 2008-

88 points "Young and untamed, but gutsy. Bold aromas of huckleberry, smoky meat and sage lead to dense tar, blackberry and cracked pepper that finish with chewy, slightly herbal tannins." Best 2008-2012
