93 points "Even better is the 2012 Zinfandel Ueberroth Vineyard, which may be their oldest Zinfandel vineyard as it was planted in 1885. This cuvee tends to be higher in acidity, but it is also powerful and packed with beautiful black and red fruits intermixed with a hint of crushed chalk. This full Zinfandel has the potential to last over a decade. (93-95)." Best -2023

95 points "(from a vineyard planted on alkaline soil in 1885): Good deep red. Knockout aromas and flavors of black and red fruits, garrigue, minerals and high-pitched spices, along with an impression of medicinal reserve. Wonderfully layered and intense, showing outstanding cut and peppery lift to the middle palate. Offers an uncanny combination of acid lift and breadth, finishing with resounding juicy length. As in recent years, this is one of the handful of elite zinfandels of the vintage. The numbers here are shocking: 16.4% alcohol, 7.1 grams per liter of acidity and a pH of 3.40."
